Ability to Hide the Tray Icon?

My system tray is cluttered enough as it is, can you add a checkbox to hide it?

I promise I send a donation. :)

I was convinced there was already an option there for that, because when my PC starts up, although DisplayFusion is running, it's not in the system tray. I have to close it with task manager and re-start it to get to the settings.

Great program, though! It even works with WindowBlinds and Vista without any problems as far as I can see. I'll try it for a further few days and then donate if I'm going to keep it - which I think I will be.

I don't this will be an option that I will add. It would make it too difficult to open the main window, and would cause too much confusion. I would recommend Windows' built-in system tray icon hiding.

For an application about beautifying the desktop environment, this should be an option. I can see how this may lead to confusion, but this could be minimized by allowing the running application to be opened from the start menu link. If a second instance is detected, the setting window would be shown and the user would have the option to restore the tray icon.

An article on the code used to bring the running instance of the application to the front then terminate the second instance.

Method 2:
With the additional taskbar of 2.3, the tray icon could easily be eliminated without any additional trouble. Right clicking on the second taskbar would show the normal DF context menu. In this case, the option to hide the tray icon would only be available to users that also use the additional taskbar.

Try PS Tray works real well & you can control ANY systray icon with it.
