TrayIt is a utility that enables you to minimize any program into the system tray instead of the taskbar.
Have you ever used a program that you needed to keep always running, but for some reason it would only minimize to the taskbar rather than the system tray? This was always the case when I was using MS Outlook many moons ago (thankfully those days are long gone). I never could quite figure out why it doesn’t just minimize to the to the system tray like an email client should. I am also surprised to find that some media players and instant messaging clients do this as well (you’d think surely the makers of instant messaging software would be sensitive to this little detail).
TrayIt is a small program that can create a small icon in the system tray and remove the program from the taskbar when minimized (see screenshot above). You can tell TrayIt to do this for any program that you want, either by minimizing that program while pressing CTRL, or by adding it within the TrayIt application interface.
All in all a nice little program that does the job well.
The program page no longer exists, but you can download ver. 184.108.40.206 of the program here.
