Summary0002113: doesn't start minimized in automatic startup
DescriptionThis behaviour was in previous versions as well.
I added speedfan to automatic startup, in Configure - Options of the program I checked "Start minimized"
but when it started it NEVER started minimized and when you click on minimize button - no reaction at all.
When you close the program and open it again, yes, it starts minimized, not always at the second time, sometimes at the third time.
Steps To Reproduce1. Add speedfan.exe to automatic startup shortcut
2. Reboot the PC
3. You see the window of the speedfan and it doesn't appear in the taskbar.
4. Press on minimize.
5. Close the speedfan.exe
6. Reopen it again.
TagsNo tags attached.

Minimized state of SpeedFan can be configured in Shell link options (if it's started through this link) or through "cmd /c start /min speedfan.exe".

I added the screenshot with the checkbox "start minimized"
Thank you anyway for your advice.

Please, use only SpeedFan's integrated option and do not try to minimize through the link or similar.

Sorry again but either the Speedfan integrated option or start with parameter /min in shell doesn't help, the same behaviour. So please try to fix this bug in future version, if it is possible

I have the same problem, but if you have the static icon, if you right click on it and select Restore, then the minimize button works. It's info, not a solution....

I have the problem in version 4.46, 4.47 and 4.49, in at last 10 of 50 pc, and all different.

Hello, there,

problem still seems to exist in 4.52.

This is what I found out so far on Windows 11 latest update:

start Speedfan minimized or not, speedfan icon appears in systray, after a while the main window opens and doesn't close again, clicking on minimize does not work. Restarting speedfa does not resolve this.

Double clicking on the icon in the systray appears to open a new instance of the main window closing the original one. And then minimizing does work.

So somehow it appears as if speedfan opens the main window on starting but loses track of it and doesn't close it again.
