How to Start the task manager at startup mode

I am already asked if it was possible to start the Task Manager (Task Manager) when you start Windows mode (either in the Notification Area or Systray). At the time I received this request, I was not able to respond. I'm going to find the information and I found it. The following manipulation was tested on Windows XP, 2000, 2003 and Vista.

First make a right click on your desktop and select New> Shortcut.
In the field of location, just type: taskmgr or C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe
** The 2 methods work
Now that your shortcut is created, right-click the shortcut and select Properties.
Select the "Shortcut" and select from the drop-down list under the "Run" option "Minimized".
Then close the dialog.
Now, if you want it to start the opening of Windows, click Start> All Programs, right-click the Startup folder and select Open.
Then simply copy or move your shortcut to create this folder and your task manager to start opening in the Windows notification area.
