[Help] Open Evernote from tray

Go to solution Solved by EvernoteUser456,

Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut to maximize Evernote when it's minimized on the notification area? For now i have to open the Evernote Helper (ctrl + alt + H) and then click on the "open Evernote" button. How could i do it with just one shortcut? I've tried creating a shortcut to Evernote.exe but for some reason it takes a long time to open it in comparisson to the first method, even when i open the executable without using the keyboard shortcut (just by clicking it). Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

Hi.  Does minimizing Evernote to the  Task Bar not allow you to switch between open applications?

That wasn't my problem. I wanted a a hotkey/shortcut to open Evernote when it's minimized in the system tray/notification area.

After researching some hours i've managed to install AutoHotKey and create a script to do so. I don't know if it's coded in the best way, but it works (any improvement is welcome):

;this script opens the evernote helper, clicks the "open Evernote" button and returns the mouse to the previous position.
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
x = 0
y = 0
MouseGetPos, x, y
Send, ^!h
SendMode Event
SetMouseDelay, 0
MouseClick, left, 1206, 80 ; 1206 and 80 are the X and Y coordinates of the "open evernote" button. You should change them to fit yours.
MouseMove, x, y


EDIT: the command to run this script is CTRL + ALT + E. Sorry, i forgot to specify it in the description.
