Receiving Faxes on Computer

In order to receive faxes on a computer, the fax software must be opened or a least minimized. Is there anyway to have it automatically be minimized after a restart of the system? Thanks.

I would think you could write something in your autoexec.bat file to make it happen... Or something similar depending on what OS you are running. If you can program it to start after boot up you should be able to add a switch to make it minimize.

If I right click and choose "run minimize", I must still double click on the desktop icon to minimize it. I want it to minimize automatically so that it's ready to receive faxes. I haven't tried Rick's suggestion yet. Thanks to both of you.

A friend of mine just called me with a solution. Go to C drive, Doucuments & Settings, All Users, Start Menu, Programs, Startup. Place the shortcut to the program that you want to open minimized here. Thanks for getting me started to get a solution.
