Run Internet Explorer minimized

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I would like to run Internet explorer minimized and I tried the followings:

$cmd = "explorer http://www.google.com"

$val = Run($cmd, "c:\temp",@SW_HIDE+@SW_MINIMIZE )

However, the IE windows still pops up. Is there a way to do it ?

Thank you.

You can try this

#include <IE.au3>

_IECreate("http://google.com", 0, 0)

Then its hidden

Or try ShellExecute().

Try to hide the window after run:

$cmd = "iexplore.exe http://www.google.com"
$val = Run($cmd)
ProcessWait("iexplore.exe", 60)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
WinSetState("classname=IEFrame", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

That code doesn't start the window hidden... in fact, that code doesn't hide it at all (it minimizes it :whistle: )
