G'day,
As the question asks, i would like to have the MyDrive Connect app on my Windows 10 Pro PC to start minimised.
As it is, the app will start in a large window, and i then have to manually minimise it myself. It may not be a big task, but i sometimes just turn my computer on for a quick task, and i have a few programs that won't run minimised, so the more i can, would be a great help.

Cheers,
Steven

    Same as @dhn. I am running Widows 10 Pro. Open MyDrive Connect>Click on settings top righthand side (gear wheel)>Deselect 'Start My Drive when computer starts'.

    Thanks for your help everyone 😀
    I knew about that option, but I had hoped it was possible to have it run when the computer starts, but have it run minimised, or in the background.
    I know a previous incarnation of the app used to run in the background, and I wouldn't see it until I either plugged my PND into the computer, or it wanted to update. I had hoped there may have been an option to run in the same way.
    Of course my latest PND connects from the garage via wifi, so it's not the same either.

    Back in the Windows 7 days, I could change the properties of the link in the start up folder, and make programs start minimised, but Windows 10 is somewhat different.

    Thanks once again for your help. I will keep looking, and if I find a way to do it, I will let you know here.

    Cheers,
    Steven.

    Hi Nabu,
    Can you expand on your comment please?
    Are you saying yes we can set the program to start minimised? If so, can you explain please?

    Cheers,
    Steven.

    Not sure the technical explanation but MyDrive runs in the background when unticking 'Start My Drive when computer starts'. At least you can install updates via WiFi etc. Just to be clear, I have unticked 'Start My Drive when computer starts'. and everything works as it should and MyDrive does not open, that is as it does when you double click the desktop icon.

    Hi StevenDon
    at the normal start, click at the top right to reduce.
    it does not reduce. take the angle of the page with the mouse.
    go back to desired size
    close open now it's desired dimension
