    I always select window mode and set it to the smallest resolution. But never minimize. just run programs over them and they work perfectly fine

    When you need to see your desktop just right click your task bar and click Show desktop.

    Heres a small app i wrote in AutoIt, as i have a bot running at work id rather hide em so people around me dont get annoyed thinking im playing during work time.


    Simple and clean and does the work.

    Hides or shows all instances at once with ALT+Shift+H

    Code:
    
    ;-----------------------------------------------------
    ;	Program:
    ;					Hide / Show window.
    ;
    ;	Description:
    ;					Hide or Show all instances of
    ;					World of Warcraft.
    ;
    ;	Bugs:
    ;					If more windows are names exact
    ;					same name those are also hidden/shown.
    ;
    ;	Author:
    ;					j0achim
    ;
    ;	Version:
    ;					B0001
    ;-----------------------------------------------------
    
    Global $title = "World of Warcraft"
    Global $state = 1
    HotKeySet("+!h", "toggle")
    
    While 1
    	Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    
    Func toggle()
    	$var = WinList($title,"")
    	If $state = 1 Then
    		For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]
    			WinSetState($var[$i][1],"",@SW_HIDE)
    		Next
    		$state = 0
    		Sleep(2000)
    	else
    		For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]
    			WinSetState($var[$i][1],"",@SW_SHOW)
    		Next
    		$state = 1
    		Sleep(2000)
    	EndIf
    EndFunc

    No, remember that AutoIt is a programming langue or interpreter langue to be exact.


    Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Same metaphor can be used in this case.

    You don't agree with who and for what reason? Just a suggestion, but writing a bit more might help us understand what you're trying to say. ;)

    BTW - what you replied to was almost 2 years old now... that would be called necro'ing a thread (bringing it back from the dead... lol)

    I wanna join in! Running minimized wow is a bad idea, and HB won't allow it. Running HB minimized is a bad idea because it sends it o the system tray, makes it hard to hit stop so you might so something you don't want.
    I am Necromancer? Can I haz cheezburger?
