Minimising to system tray

Actually, that does the job, thanks. The reason I asked was because I sometimes forget to start FSUIPC until the sim has started in full screen and the system tray is hidden resulting in a bit of a faff.

Just to make sure, it will connect to the sim when it loads an aircraft, or before? I'll have another go and watch carefully.

With auto-connect disabled, it will only connect when you tell it to. You can only connect once FSUIPC7 has detected MSFS is running, and you can connect as soon as MSFS' SimConnect interface is ready, which occurs sometime during loading. However, if connecting manually, best to do it once MSFS has loaded and is on the home screen. You don't have to have an aircraft loaded, although other things (e.g. WideServer, luas, etc) won't be started until an aircraft is loaded.
