    Hello @mri1397

    Thank you for your message.

    Please follow these instructions to get TeamViewer closing automatically the user interface when starting with Windows:

    1. Right-click on the TeamViewer icon on your desktop and go to Proprieties

    2. In the tab Shortcut, within the menu Run, select Minimised.

    3. And confirm by clicking OK.

    After this, TeamViewer should minimize the window automatically when starting with the system.

    I hope this could help. If not, do not hesitate to ask your questions here.

    Hi, this didn't work for me. I have set both the shortcut and the .exe file to run as minimized and it still insists on opening as a window. I have a program that closes Teamviewer everytime I launch a game and reopens it after I close the game. Teamviewer pops up each time it reopens.

    For a long time I was unable to start TeamViewer minimized with Windows startup.

    Changing the TeamViewer setting, changing setting in the TeamViewer shortcut nor changes to the windows startup folder did solve the problem.

    The problem was solved when I discovered that there were several TeamViewer installations, located on different disks on my computer. In every TeamViewer installation folder I ran the uninstall.exe file and instructed the installation program to delete all setting while uninstalling the software.

    After a new installation I enabled "Start TeamViewer with Windows" and the program starts minimized when the computer is turned on.
