How can I send Windows Live Writer to the System Tray?

ops November 9, 2010

Is there a plugin to send Windows Live Writer to the System Tray?

I found this (for version 14.0.8117.416), but the homepage is down!

Can you help me? Thanks!

    Start Windows Live Mail.
    Right-click on its icon in the notification area.
    In the opening context menu, check the item Hide window when minimized.
    Now minimize Live Mail’s Inbox window—done!

    Step 1: Make sure Windows Live Messenger is closed.
    Step 2: Go to Start > All Programs > Windows Live then Right-click on Windows Live Messenger and select Properties (msnmsgr.exe in C:Program FilesWindows LiveMessenger)
    Step 3: In the Compatibility tab, check Run the program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista. Then click OK

    Now, try running the application and then minimize it. It will minimize to the System Tray.

    you can use a tool like PowerMenu or Tray It!, both of which will send any applications system tray.

    Whether or not they work with Windows Live Writer is something you'll have to find out on your own as I do not use this program. Good luck!
