Microsoft Outlook – Minimize to Tray

Filed under: Microsoft Windows — Andrew @ 7:46 pm

So I need to have Microsoft Outlook open at all times to make sure I am getting my emails, but keeping it on the start menu is a bit of a pain because it takes up valuable screen real estate.  I have done the googling and found the answer to my problems … Minimizing to the System Tray.

How do you do this?

  • Right-click on the Outlook icon in the System Tray
  • Click the “Hide When Minimized” option

And presto, it no longer appears on my task bar.
