Auto-minimize the WHS 2011 Launchpad
One of my biggest Windows Home Server 2011 pet peeves involves the new Launchpad software. It’s not that I don’t like the software. It does a good job of exposing the server’s functions and alert status. The problem is that there is no option to launch it minimized at startup, leaving it to constantly float around on my desktop. It’s especially annoying on my HTPC where it totally throws off my home theater feng shui. As minor an inconvenience as it may be, it is nice to know that someone was able to come up a solution, albeit a more complicated solution than it should be.
