Thread Starter 
Ok so I have my realtek hd audio panel setup to startup. But I want it to start minimized or to my icon tray. How do I do this? I cant seem to figure it out. redface.gifredface.gifredface.gifredface.gif

    Try appending "-s" (without quotes) to the end of the command-line, exactly as shown below (your program path may be different):

"C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtHDVCpl.exe" -s

    Please note that this will not "make a program start minimized", it is only a special command-line switch supported by the Realtek audio control panel application that tells it to start iconized to the tray. thumb.gif
