To give you an idea of how times have changed, and just how ungodly freaking old I am, back when I was in college the group that managed activities for the student center used to show movies every Saturday night. One weekend the movie was Insatiable, starring the redoubtable Ms. Lovelace. My wife and I went as she was taking a class in human sexuality at the time and going to the movie was worth extra credit. The center was packed and the audience was pretty rowdy, which actually made it more fun. Almost 40 years later, I still remember one of the best ad-lib lines from the audience, when a guy wearing an eye patch walked into the scene:
Skype should have an option to "run when logging in", "run maximized" or soemthing similar hidden in the settings.
Slack... I don't know. I haven't used it.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
When working with a client, I never do a startup at their premises; I setup the windows I want open etc, then suspend (or if it's a long journey to them hibernate) and just resume when I'm there. That way no unexpected stuff, and no time wasted firing up tools I'll need.
Where possible I'll also use their display (be it a large monitor or projector) and startup the machine before plugging in their monitor cable - again, no risk of stuff being visible that "shouldn't" be.
I use a local email client (Thunderbird) that's set not to download messages except on demand.
Strangely enough, it reminds me of formal methods: a quixotic quest. I'd believe "no code"--outside of a constrained problem domain--if the input was a spec written in natural language and the output was code. Although this would be impressive, it would merely shift the problem from one of writing unambiguous, correct code to one of writing unambiguous, correct specs. But think of the benefit. A lot of literature majors and lawyers could finally find constructive work!
They can't write unambiguous and correct English and they have special classes in it!
