Run From System Tray

Recommended Posts

Usually CCleaner runs in a window, if you minimize the window it goes to the system tray where the icon flashes telling you that its doing its job. How about a setting where whenever CCleaner is activated, it runs directly from the system tray in the background, leaving screen space open for other, uninterrupted work.

You can create a shortcut.


I made mine by right clicking on the desktop > New > Shortcut.


Copy and Paste in location:


"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO


Name it CCleaner Auto.


CCleaner will run flashing in the tray.


/AUTO - Runs the cleaner upon loading and then closes the application.

I close my browser and all running apps. (excluding firewall, antivirus...) then I let CCleaner do its job before resuming any work.
