Only the x64 build is updated to version 4.66, the x32 build is still at version 4.61. I notified the developer about that a couple of days ago, no response and no fix so far.

Given the time of year, he may be on holidays... :)

RBTray v4.8 Updated

billon on 31 Aug 2018
  • 149KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Jul 2018
  • Suggested by modussn

RBTray allows you to minimize application windows to the system tray by:

  • Right-Clicking its minimize button
  • Shift-Right-Clicking on its title bar
  • Using the Windows-Alt-Down hotkey
Note that not all all of these methods will work for every window, so please use whichever one works for your needs.

Restore a window by left clicking that window's tray icon, or by selecting 'Restore Window' from the tray icon's right-click menu.

Note: The program has no tray icon of its own. To exit the application, minimize a window, right-click the resulting tray icon and choose 'Exit RBTray'. Alternatively, run RBTray.exe with the "--exit" parameter.

I find I have to double click tray icon to restore, single click does nothing. Using XP SP3. Very useful program.

Hidewin, Iconize, RBTray, and so on ...
I think the best and more useful that let you iconize on sys tray and set the trasparency of every window just right clicking is still Power Menu.

you can use also wintray, which is nice.

I will attempt to post on application website but ...
"Always start minimized (To Tray)" option does not work.

I have not seen changes occur to the configuration file (AutoHideDesktopIcons.ini) for this setting.

I will also ask about command line option to start minimized.

donald on 2011-09-22 00:45

Please note the immediate response of the developer.

This is a very nice and handy piece of software from a very prolific developer.

I have only seen first rate software from this developer.

Neat little app. Uses around 1.0 - 1.5MB RAM. GUI is a little ugly like all SoftwareOK apps, but you'll probably want to start this in the system tray and forget it! :)

Been looking for a desktop program like this. It uses virtually the same interface as e.ggtimer.com, which I've been using for while.
