Simple Window Hiding
Simple Window Hiding is a lightweight software application designed with a single goal in mind: to help you hide windows in the system tray using a hotkey combination.
The advantages of being portable
Since this a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to concel active windows on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Simple Window Hiding runs quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals only a few configuration settings to tinker with.
The tool gives you the possibility to hide a window in the system tray by simply pressing the “Ctrl” and “Alt” keys, and clicking on the target panel. In order to reveal the concealed window, you are required to perform a right-click operation on the program’s icon from the system tray and select the item that you want to restore.
Additionally, you can make the utility run the program at Windows startup. During our testing we have noticed that Simple Window Hiding carries out a task quickly and without errors. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources.
The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal tool for rookies. On the downside, the application doesn’t let you reassign hotkeys so you are stuck with the preset options and hide multiple windows at the same time.
To sum things up, Simple Window Hiding offers a simple software solution and comes packed with limited features for helping you hide windows in the system tray.
