Monday, the Tip Day: Ziepod in SystemTray
posted on Monday, August 6, 2007

The system tray is usually located at the bottom right corner, next to the clock in the Windows Taskbar. It contains tiny icons for easy access to running applications and their settings, such as sound volume etc. As in the case of Ziepod, software applications may support minimization into the system tray so that they don't consume space in your taskbar when they are not used.

By default, when you minimize Ziepod, it doesn't minimize into the system tray, though. You need to customize your preferences settings to enable that. To do that:

  • Open the preferences of your Ziepod (just use CTRL+P shortcut)
  • Switch to the 'Display' tab
  • Check the box entitled 'Enable Ziepod to minimize into the system tray'
  • Click OK to apply this change
  • Enabling this feature not only provides you extra space in your taskbar, but also offers you extra access to specific features of Ziepod even it is minimized. How is that? Just make a right click on that tiny icon in your system tray and you will get a popup menu with lots of functions to control your running Ziepod at the background. Check the sample screenshot below

    As you can see, there are numerous operations you can apply from this popup menu. Since they are mainly related to download list and playlist, you can live for a long time without having to restore Ziepod by just making use of these options. For example you can initiate update check on your subscriptions and read the new posts via popup notifier.

    This is yet another example showing the variety of access points you have with Ziepod. We believe there are two types of Ziepod users; one keeps Ziepod in minimized and the other in Deskbar mode when they don't use it. We do keep in deskbar mode as it makes it easy to drag-and-drop things anytime you want, however if you don't use deskbar mode, then we certainly recommend you to apply this tip to your daily use. Surely, it will speed things up for you.

    Hope you like this tip and make use of it. By the way, do you have any suggestion about new options to be added to that popup menu shown above? Different experiences may require different options and we'd like to hear from you. Just use ALT+F shortcut to send your messages to us.

    Till the next week, have a great week,
