Hello,

Woudl you have an example for minimizing some windows at windows start ?

I guess it should use triggers https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/working-with-triggers/?ID=43b31609-4ec6-4478-99f8-a1f11e9793f7 but an example would be welcome to begin learn them.

Kind Regards

That guide is a good place to start for sure. I've attached a screenshot of an example rule that would minimize Notepad when it opens.

Hope that helps!

Hello,

Thank you.

I tried this but it failed in 2 ways :

1. In my case dp is launched at the end of windows start, ie all software are already launched when dp starts so the dp rules don't apply.

2. This rule for a software like email for example, when i click on new email, the new email windows does not appear as it will be catched by the rule.

Anyone having other ideas ?

To get around #1, you could disable the program from Windows startup, and create a DF Trigger rule that uses the "DisplayFusion Starts" Trigger Event. You need to add a new Custom Function to the Trigger that uses the "Launch Application" action. This guide has some details on doing something similar: Launching and Positioning an Application on Startup

To get around #2, you can use the blue target icon for Window Class in the Trigger rule, and drop it on the main window, so that the rule only applies to that window class.

Hope that helps!

If we can define, in your solution #1 both the start and the windows rule, then the whole problem is resolved, no need to resolve # as it won't happen
