    Default [SOLVED] Win 8 start up, ZA start maximized

    After installing to a new Windows 8 laptop, ZA doesn't start minimised to system tray. It does start with Windows, but with the whole ZA window/programme showing. Any ideas here?

    This is normally due to ZA been called twice at startup. Did you had any problem installing ZA? Check WIN8 startpup (task manager) for duplicate entries.

    Also note that if you shutdown WIN8 with ZA open then next reboot ZA will be opened again.

    Thanks fax...it was the second option. Must have had it open on a shut down. Now it's starting minimised, you can't see that reassuring 'Z' in the taskbar, unless you choose to view hidden icons. Any way around that?

    That is actually a feature of MS Windows. Nothing to do with ZA.

    Right click the taskbar, properties, taskbar tab, Notification area: customize, on ZA icon select "Show Icon and notifications". Done.
