    Find Taskbar or Tray Folder

    Recently I installed an app that placed an icon in the tray, but not in the start-up menu. I want to be able to find that icon in the tray & copy or move it to the start > programs menu. Thanks.

    Go into Windows Explorer Windows Start Menu Programs StartUp and the icon should be there. Right click on it and then drag it to your Start menu button and when the tree opens up drag the icon where you want it and release the mouse button.

    Doc,

    The Icon is in the System Tray, but not in the Start-Up folder. I have no idea why.

    Re: Find Taskbar or Tray Folder

    If it cannot be found in startup, then it is probably executed from within the registry.

    Mistakes in here can "kill" windows - so at being very careful <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> check at
    HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion

    either of these keys:

    RunServices
    Run

    HKLM = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    May also be under HKCY [HKEY_CURRENT_USER]
    Windows XP SP3

    I ran across this little app last night: Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel. It does one thing, and does it very effectively. Visit his page and take a look - particularly if the thought of the registry gives you the heebie jeebies.

    Re: Find Taskbar or Tray Folder

    Terry (or anybody),

    Couldn't find it through your path (HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion.) Found a related folder in HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but not any type of .exe file. The app I am trying to find is the mixing & routing console from my new soundcard, Echo Audio's GINA 24. That's really the only executable software app the card uses, the remainder being hardware related. The icon in the System Tray launches the console fine, I just want to be able to launch from my Start > Programs menu. When I began to browse around to find an app folder from Echo Audio...well, that's the larger problem. There's a folder entitled Echo 24 in the Windows Systems folder, but the only file in the folder, when opened, places another type of icon in the System Tray. When that is opened, it's the same mixing & routing console, but with a different title. I have a support request in to Echo Audio, but I find it strange that an applications foler of some sort cannot be found on my system, with an .exe file which can be dragged to the Programs folder. Weird.

    Thanks.

    Re: Find Taskbar or Tray Folder

    Hi Mark:
    Did you try Mark's (WyllyWylly) suggestion. If you don't want another utility, try this. The first step is to check the program itself. There may be an Options or Preference dialog box that lets you decide whether or not you want it to run at Windows startup & whether you want an icon in the systray. If that doesn't work, go to Start/Run & type

    msconfig

    then press <enter>. Click on the startup tab. Scroll through the dialog box & uncheck anything you want NOT to start with Windows. You may have to reboot.

    You'll have to search the program folder for the application that you installed. Then press Ctrl+F & the Find box will come up with the folder selected. Type

    *.exe

    & search for the executable that starts the program. Drag it to the start menu &, without releasing the mouse, drag it to the programs folder & any subfolder that you want (You can rename it if you wish). Then you can access it from the Start menu.
    Cheers,

    Phil,

    The application is not in the programs folder. Right now, there is only one instance of an executable file on my entire system to launch the soundcard's mixing console; & it is an icon in my System Tray. If I could simply find the folder for the System Tray, I could create my own shortcut. That is all I want to do...find the folder for the System Tray.

    Re: Find Taskbar or Tray Folder

    To answer the "Why?" a Google search for Echo Audio's GINA 24 yielded a review with this little tid-bit ......
    "Once the host card driver has been installed the Echo installer then takes over and installs the Gina 24 console, which is accessible through a little icon on your Windows task bar."
    How to get at the Echo installer and change the default location of the icon / shortcut is the trick here I think. But there's where I get in over my head. Anybody have any ideas ??? My first inkling woud be to use the utility that was mentioned in Mark's post, Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel at <http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml> to find the little @#$!% and create your own shortcut and then dump the utility if you don't want or need it anymore.

    As for the multiple instances of the icon the review stated ......
    "Now this is the interesting part: The Gina24 Windows drivers will also allow you to run multiple Gina24's in one system and will also operate alongside Echo's other cards that are equipped with Esync (all of their "24" series cards). This effectively makes the Gina24 an audio solution that is capable of being scaleable and fitting the most demanding needs of a home studio. According to Echo Audio, you can have as many Gina24's sitting peacefully in a system at once as you have PCI slots. So for example, if you have 5 PCI slots you could theoretically have 5 Gina24's which would give you 40 I/O of ADAT, 5 I/O of S/PDIF, 10 analogue inputs and 40 analogue outputs. Additionally, all of the cards will share the same IRQ and each card is daisy-chained internally via a small, card-to-card Esync cable."

    Hope some of this helps or at least gives you a direction to go in. From what the review said you seem to have the right card for your studio work !! <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>

    Thanks Doc,

    Once you mentioned running multple GINA 24's, I remembered info that from the manual. Scaleable, indeed. That's why the 2nd console had a different title. I think I'm going to wait to hear back from Echo Audio tech support on Monday for the program folders shortcut. Thanks again.

    Glad I could shed some light on the grey area. Probably best to wait for Echo to give you the correct info. It's too nice a piece of equipment to be mucking about with registry hacks and such.
