    Minimize Database on a Window 7 Machine


      On a windows 7 computer, I have created a separate database that runs a script and opens another database every time the computer boots up.  What script step can I use to minimize that whole database to the task bar?  I know the script step to minimize a window, but I don't know how to minimize the whole database.


      Thanks for your help

          One approach would be to use "Send Event" from Filemaker to instruct the command line (cmd) in Windows 7 to minimise the window.

          The other approach is to leave Filemaker out of the equation altogether and simply schedule a batch script using Windows 7 which minimises/arranges your windows after startup. Lots of examples/documentation on this available in your favourite seach engine :-)


          How did we ever function before Google?
