Hi and welcome,

There are a few steps needed to get this started:

Build a little script using Shellexecute to start your software, compile it ( it then becomes an exe file ).

Now copy this executable into your windows startup folder and test.

Once you get that working you can add more commands to your script winwaitactive and sends to manipulate the now running software.

Try to use ControlSend , ControlCommands wherever possible or find the keyboard shortcut that starts your desired function and have Autoit 'send' that.

Note: need more info about what you mean with "Send program to tray" does it go there when started?

Give it a shot and come back if you get stuck.

Good luck !
