@ firemanfu @ zachninme Pressing one key on the keyboard or right-clicking the mouse both take too much time, energy, thought and trouble. That is why sniper120 made this Instructable. And kudos to him! Anyhoo...

i just tried it out and it works great i think ill have some fun with this by the way what i did was i chose to append all .au3 files with autoit then i opened notepad pasted the above mentioned code and saved it as CDtray.au3
sniper120 (author)  blckpythn6 years ago
yes, that is way easier than compiling! Some noobs will find it easier to just compile it.

This ONLY works on PCs. Yes I know their is that button, but why make a instructable only for a small amount of viewers?(2,090+ Last time I checked)

Why don't you just do Right-click>Eject. That works in more than just Windows, and doesn't require instillation of anything.
