Sending command to system tray to click an icon

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

First of all, i'm a newbie in AutoIt so still don't know a lot of things at the moment. I've been trying to find a way to access a specific app in the system tray so i can automate a login. However i'm having a hard time finding a specific tutorial or guide. What i want to do is restore the app from the system tray and connect to the VPN. I cannot launch the app using the title and it lacks information when using Win Info Tool. The application is called GlobalProtect. Is there a UDF that can do such automation?  Here's what i want to do:


1. Launch/Restore/Show the application that is currently minimized in the system tray.

    By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.
