    Presumably you mean minimize on exit? All you have to do to minimize it to the taskbar is click the Minimize button. Since it starts in milliseconds, not much would be achieved by having an option to minimize it to the taskbar on exit. There's a warning on exit option to save you losing work on exit without saving.

    That's a pitty, especially since it's now starting up with my PC and set with the option for easy printscreens. "C:\Program Files (x86)\IrfanView\i_view32.exe" /capture=6
    Would be a great feature if it by option never closes and is hidden in the taskbar.
    That would be my wish

    For screen shots I use GreenShot... very nice, good features, a simple, but good editor... and free...

    Ja, with RBtray it works for me as expected. But this is, of course, yet another thing that has to run in the background.

    I have forwarded the Feature Request. Let's see what Irfan says.

    It is unrealistic to use only one program. FastStone Capture would be a better choice for screen shots to keep always in RAM as it uses a lot less memory than IrfanView when idle. It even has a toolbar button to open screen grabs in IrfanView.

    FastStone Capture 5.3 is the latest free version, which like IrfanView, is free to use for non commercial and charity/educational use. The latest version is $19.95 Shareware.

    Print key to copy the wohle screen in to the clipboard, ALT+print key for the current window.
