How to get here...

  • The VueMinder icon will be displayed in the task tray, which is usually located near the lower-right corner of your screen, on the task bar.
  • If you don't see the VueMinder icon in the task tray, the icon might be hidden. You can customize the task tray settings to always show the VueMinder icon.
  • If the icon isn't displayed or hidden, then VueMinder probably isn't running. You can start VueMinder using the shortcut on the desktop or Start Menu. After starting VueMinder, its icon should appear in the task tray.


By default, VueMinder will launch at system startup and will be minimized to the task tray. These settings can be modified in the Program Options. When the main window is minimized, VueMinder will continue to run in the background to ensure reminders are processed as needed.


CPU utilization will usually be 0% while VueMinder is running in the background. This will occasionally increase while reminders are being processed or calendars are being synced. However, those operations take less than a second and you shouldn't notice any system slowdown while VueMinder is running.

Memory Use

Memory use will vary. Since VueMinder is a .NET application, the memory reported by Task Manager may be higher than what you might expect. This is not because VueMinder actually requires the amount of indicated memory, but because of the way in which Windows and the .NET Framework allocate and cache memory for .NET applications. VueMinder can run on systems that only have 256 MB of RAM, so do not be concerned if you see memory allocation of 100 MB or more. This is just what Task Manager is reporting and not what VueMinder actually uses or needs. If other applications require the memory, Windows will reduce the amount of memory allocated to VueMinder. Conversely, the more memory is available and unused, the higher the allocation will be.

Task Tray Icon

An icon will be displayed in the Task Tray (or Notification Area) of the Windows taskbar. The exact appearance will vary depending on your version of Windows. The example screenshots below show Windows 7 with an Aero theme.
