Minimize to tray

<10kB. Updated 2018-07-13. Supports both Anki 2.0.x and 2.1.x.


Adds an icon to the system tray and allows minimizing anki to the tray when the icon is pressed or when the main window X button is pressed. Configuration To start Anki minimized in the tray Anki 2: Tools > Add Ons > MinimizeTotray2 > Edit... and change the value of the variable HIDE_ON_STARTUP to True Anki 2.1: Tools > Add-ons > Minimize to tray > Config and set the variable hide_on_startup to true Changelog Anki 2.1: v1.0 (12/07/2018) Initial release Anki 2: v0.4 (12/07/2018) Rename to 'MinimizeToTray' v0.3 (30/08/2014) Fix behavior on shutdown, to prevent data loss (thanks to Adriano Bedeschi) v0.2 (14/12/2012) Fix multiple trays bug, Add minimize on startup feature v0.1 (9/11/2012) Initial release Known issues In the Anki 2.1 version when hide_on_startup is set to True, the tray icon does not appear if the profile manager is shown when Anki is started. So this option should be activated only when a single user is present or when Anki is started with the -b PROFILE option so that the profile manager is not displayed.

How about minimize only some windows

Hi, I would give it 5 stars if there's that feature. Actually, I just wanna hide the main windows while I'm adding new words ^^
