Iconize resides in the system tray, allowing you to hide any application also in the system tray as an icon via its right-click menu. In the event that Explorer crashes and the taskbar is closed (and the system tray with it), Iconizer will rebuild all your icons when Explorer restarts. In addition, the program includes application minimize, maximize, restore, or close all at once.

NOTE: Official and many mirror sites are offline, so a local mirror is provided for download. Thanks to nolajovol for providing a copy of the last version.

Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP and extract to a temporary folder

I tried both 'Cliquez' links. Both return a 404 error message in a popup window. Must mean version 2.0.05 is gone.

@hamasaki - good catch, instructions updated

Looks like you don't need to extract anything? Looks to be natively portable?

@TalkOrBell - great find, thanks!

Tough one to find even if you know what you are doing...

Found it here on the first 'Cliquez' then wait on the next page

Iconize does not have to be installed to access the exe. It can be extracted using 7Zip.

For me it doesn't work. Test it yourself -- Run Iconize and the end task explorer.exe. Only a few of tray icons come back when explorer restarts. Anyone else encountered such behaviour?
