    Minimize winamp on RR Startup

    How do I minimize winamp when RR starts. As the program is opening, I see winamp before I see the main RR screen. Any ideas?

    There is an option to Hide Winamp, in RR Config up top, but it only has effect a few seconds after you see the winamp window...


    no workaround for that afaik...

    After you set the RRConfig to hide winamp like RoyN said above, close RR.
    Run Winamp alone and make sure the equalizer and playlist are turned off. Close and then run RR. Should only see a flash of winamp and its gone.

    This may depend on the version of Winamp/RR you have.. I do know that I have added support to run winamp hidden from the start (when using the hide winamp option)... I have just tested it here and seems to work.. not sure if this was a feature on version 5-12...

    Start Winamp -

    right click on winamp in the status area of the taskbar and select Winamp
    or
    right click on winamp in the Systemtray

    and uncheck
    [Main Window] ( Alt+W )
    [Playlist Editor] ( Alt+E )
    [Video] ( Alt+V )
    [Media Library] ( Alt+L )
    [Equalizer] ( Alt+G )


    restart Winamp


    Concider this:

    If you uncheck both [Show Winamp in Taskbar] and [Systemtray] and hide the Main Window as well, ( I wouldn't recomment it ), you will have to use the taskmanager to "get in contact" with Winamp again:

    Right click on Winamp - select maximize - this will bring Winamp out, if this doesn't do the trick then Right click on Winamp - select minimize - Start Winamp again and select maximize.

    Testet with Winamp 5.09

    Also make sure you are using the classic winamp skin. The modern one doesn't always seem to respond correctly.
