Feature Request: Minimised Macro Window *Resolved*

Post by weeemrcb »

Hi
I love the macro windows.
I have a "Master Reset" which triggers when VMB starts and other macro functions which I use for daily PC use, gaming and so on.

Every time my PC starts the Macro window opens, so I have to minimise it manually.
Having the option to have it minimise automatically on start-up (like VMB) would make it perfect.

My request is to have a menu option to have it start with VMB, but be automatically minimised to the taskbar.

Thanks
W

That feature is already there. Have you tried to right click on the program icon on top left. Mine looks like this and starts up minimized in the taskbar.

Focus the Macro window and check the Alt-Space menu (or click the program icon on the window). There are two entries on there: "System Tray (Close = Hide)" and "Show App On Startup". Make sure "System Tray" is selected and "Show App..." is unselected. Do the same in the main menu of VoiceMeeter Banana. That should give you what you need, assuming you're not on an OS that loses its systemtray icons every so often (Vista's bad at this). Hopefully this screenshot should help.

I hope that helps you out.

Huh ... this doesn't work for me.

I have the following set.

VMBanana:
System Tray (Run at Startup)
MacroButtons: Run on VoiceMeeter Start


Macro Buttons:
System Tray (Close = Hide)


if I don't tell VMBAnana to do "MacroButtons: Run on VoiceMeeter Start" then they don't appear at all.
When I do, the Macros are in their own window until I close them to the taskbar.

VMBanana does start minimised to the taskbar, it's just the Macro window that won't start minimised.

It's the same for me on Win 7 and Win 10

In case it's relevant I'm using: VoiceMeeter Banana V2.0.3.7

Resolved it .....

I installed the latest version of Macro Buttons (the version that integrates with the Elgato StreamDeck) and it now minimises on start-up :)

For reference: MacroButtons V1.0.2.1
