    Part 1

    Dexpot: Can do the operation (tried it by both right-clicking minimize button and hotkey combination). It has the 'fake minimize' problem.

    eXtra Buttons: Can do the operation (tried it by right-clicking title bar extra button). It has the 'fake minimize' problem.

    Actual Window Manager: Can do the operation (tried it by both right-clicking minimize button). The only one doing the job perfectly, but it is not free.

    PowerMenu: Can only handle a few windows.

    No more time to test a little thing like this, sorry... For the moment I'll pick up The Wonderful Icon as a free choice.

    Moo0 WindowMenuPlus Can Iconize to the try along with a few other options such as on top. It is missing rollup to titlebar but I find it useful when other programs are not working full with certain windows.

    BTW tested on Windows 7 x64 SP1

    DM2 hasn't updated for 8 years, it can't handle right-clicking minimize button to minimize applications to tray operation on my Windows 7 x64, so I began to seek some alternatives.

    Pitaschio: Can do the operation (tried it by right-clicking minimize button). But just a little better to DM2 (not updated for almost 5 years). It can cause problems like crashing your explorer.exe.

    The Wonderful Icon: A software final released in 2002, but it works fine! Can do the operation (tried it by right-clicking minimize button). The only problem is if one application you minimized to tray is bugged, can't respond, then all your applications you minimized to tray can't use The Wonderful Icon's context menu.

    4t Tray Minimizer: Can do the operation (tried it by right-clicking minimize button), and hasn't that context menu problem. But it is a 'fake minimize', if the app plays sounds, it still plays, and the CPU usage will not be lowered. At least the free version works this way.

    RBTray: Can do the operation (tried it by right-clicking minimize button). But it has both 'context menu frozen' and 'fake minimize' problem, and you must end the process to kill/unload it, not recomended.
