How to run CCleaner in startup minimized

Recommended Posts

I need to run CCleaner minimized into a tray when the system is startup, but I do not need to run the autoclean. Simple action - run minimized, how?

So you want the CCleaner icon on the taskbar when you start up but dont want it to run a clean?

Right click on the desktop icon (or the .exe file in File Explorer) and select 'Pin to Taskbar'.

It will then stay there through reboots until you 'Unpin from Taskbar'

@nukecad actually I think the op means system tray not taskbar.

I achieve what you want by having monitoring enabled and run ccleaner at startup turned off. Not sure if free allows this as my copy of free is the portable version so I haven't tried.

Of course,  I talk about system tray

Thank you! Finally, I do not need to minimize it manually every time on system startup.

Indeed, this does not work with the portable version of CCleaner (the checkbox to enable active monitoring is inactive), but works fine with the regular version of CCleaner

I  would like to point out that CCleaner has a start minimized option. Press "Options" then "Advanced" and then tick the box beside "Start Minimized". There is no need to uncheck the run CCleaner at startup option.
