Windoze is like the tool kit in the garage. You will need it for many things, 
but garage is the place to keep it! And when you do need it, a lot of rummaging 
is needed to find the correct tool, but it is always there & often reliably 
does that special job. 
Can't use regularly, unless one loves that search, and the mousing, dragging & 
dropping, something like you had to do here!

Ok, found it. Just creating a shortcut and adding it to the startup folder 
(C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp) with the command 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Zim Desktop Wiki\zim.exe" --plugin trayicon in it

Hi Hans,

Do you also runi it on Windows? In that case, what exactly do you do? Are you 
using Task Schedule?

Well my autostart script and shortcut for manual launching both exec this only:

zim --plugin trayicon

as the doc states, and that's been working fine for me.

I'm sorry but I can't manage to run it minimized on try on a startup.

I am using Task Schedule on Windows 8.1 and I start a cmd with the following 
optional arguments: /c start "ZimMini" /min "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zim Desktop 

This allows me to open Zim, but it is always maximized.

Any ideas?

Not a Zim issue, just like starting any app at Windows startup, google is your 

Just make sure to include the "trayicon only" flag to the command if that's 
what you want.

Thank you so much! I have found the plugin for Windows under 
Edit>Preferences>Plugins>Tray Icon

Now I am wondering how can I start Zim wiki on a Windows start but already 
minimized. Any ideas?

Yes it is, have you tried it ?

The manual page on this plugin will tell you what the command is to start

Hello, is it possible to use the Tray Icon plugin on Windows? If not, is there 
any trick to start zim hidden in the system tray?
