start teamviewer in a minimised mode


I have the latest teamviewer which autostarts when my pc starts. However, it starts in a maximised mode and when you go to the options, the close to tray menu is greyed out. Also there is no option that allows teamviewer to autostart as minimised. I tried to scan all the registry settings to to see if i can start the application as minimised by default.

Can someone please help?

    Hi I have the same problem as above. Altering 'Properties' to 'Minimised' does not work for me either.

    Has anyone been in the same position and fixed this?

    I was able to fix this by editing the following registry entry:



    It had a value of "1" assigned. I switched it to "0".
