JSI Tip 2090. More on getting Task Manager into the System Tray.

In tip 1935, we placed Task Manager into the system tray using a shortcut.

Rickard Uddenberg, suggested the following method, which works for all users:

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Add Value name Taskmanager, as a string (REG_SZ) variable, and set the string to:

"c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe" /c "start" /min c:\winnt\system32\taskmgr.exe
