This is really a different repeat of bug #41074.

The issue with minimizing the command window is that then the initial welcome to octave wizard is also minimized and so nothing gets displayed normally on the screen.

I remember taking a bit of a look at trying to override the minimize for the welcome wizard, but couldnt find a way in Qt.

I'm using the Windows binaries from here: http://mxeoctave.osuv.de/

On lines 36 / 38 of octave.bat, please add /min to prevent the DOS window popping up. It looks a bit more polished that way. Thanks!

start /min octave-gui.exe %*
