Actual Window Minimizer was created to bring more convenience in window management, offering new ways for optimizing your workspace that standard Windows functions don't provide. It lets you minimize any window to the system tray, thus leaving the taskbar empty and your workspace more organized. It's also possible to minimize a window to any space on the desktop.
The tool has different ways of minimization. You can manually turn on the feature with the special Minimize-to-Tray button in window's title bar, via system window command or using the hotkey. It's also possible to adjust automatic minimization upon window's startup or deactivation. Finally, you can replace the function of default buttons (either Minimize or Close).
The thing particularly helpful for fine-tuning minimization is that the tool can apply individual settings for a single window type. You can either set options for all windows or adjust minimization properties for particular window types. Such division allows you getting precisely the effect you want from working with the program. All the adjustments are extremely easy to set as the interface is very close to ideal and takes no time to familiarize with it.
Actual Window Minimizer is also at its best with window compatibility as it supports most of window types, including command prompt windows (also known as console/CMD/DOS ones).
