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.

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! :)

After having tried out several of those simple reminders, I believe I'm going to stick with this one. It's not as pretty as a few other ones, but it has some nice additional options (like launching of files, programs, links, etc.) and, above all, it's the only one that I know of that reminds me not only after the computer has started, but also after the computer gets out of STANDBY mode. And I use standby quite often. If someone knows of another reminder that also reminds after the computer gets out of standby, please let me know.

I agree with dot that there are some nice options, and in addition, the list is in text format, and I have it set to autocreate CSV format so I can look at all, say, upcoming Canadian elections (I have all kinds of things in mine) and import into other programs. The author revisits most of his tools about once a year, and for utilities that is pretty good. After over a decade, I am still using Reminder.

Thanks :)

This app was worth installing just for the ability to disable the minimum width restriction on vertical taskbars. Now it's nice and narrow.

Right-click the tray icon and select 'Advanced Options', then set the 'no_width_limit' value to '1'.
