GIMPMinimizer has been designed to help you manage several GIMP windows, including the GIMP main window, as they were only one regarding minimizing/maximizing actions. For those who don’t know what GIMP is, here’s a brief comment about it: GIMP stands for “GNU Image Manipulation Program”, and is a freely distributed piece of software oriented to photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on several operating systems.
GIMPMinimizer can be configured to run at Windows start up so you don’t have to run it specifically each time you use GIMP. You can enable and disable the function of GIMPMinimizer by double clicking on the tray icon, or selecting the correct option on the pop up menu that appears when you right click on the same.
The main disadvantage of GIMPMinimizer is that it won’t run on operating systems other than Windows, while GIMP is available for several operating systems. Another disadvantage is that it won't allow configuring it to work with other multiple-windows applications instead of GIMP. This, naturally, makes of GIMPMinimizer a useless tool for those who are not GIMP users.
