junkew, Thanks for the hints - got it working now. JustSomeone, This script looks first in the main systray - if it does not find the icon it opens the popup and looks there: #include <GuiToolBar.au3> Global $hSysTray_Handle Global $sTipText = "TestScript" ; Change this to the text you require HotKeySet("q", "_Search") Opt("TrayMenuMode", 3) TrayCreateItem("One") TrayCreateItem("Two") TrayCreateItem("Three") TrayCreateItem("") $mExit_Item = TrayCreateItem("Exit") TraySetState()
