Cant close window to tray when running task.

Post by ChaosX »

Upgraded to 9.39g... Twice today launched run in background with preview. When the backup initiates, I cannot x-out the window to return it to the tray. Maximix and minimize work (minimize goes to taksbar not tray... so not a solution). Seems a new bug,

Win10 20H2 x64 here. Ideas?

Hello,
you cannot use X to minimize. Never could. X closes and terminates the GUI. In which case a tray icon may be left over, but that's the Background Scheduler - a completely separate process.

Jobs that run "with preview" always run in the main GUI process, and X would stop that and kill the running job. Syncovery prevents that.

The behavior and feel also depends on whether "Run Profiles in Main Window" is chosen via the Gears button in the toolbar, and then "Running Options".

BUT! You can choose "Minimize to tray" there, so that minimizing is actually a solution. When the GUI is minimized to tray, it becomes a square tray icon, as opposed to the Background Scheduler, which has the usual round icon.

Clearly, I confused the scheduler tray location with the interface. After all the years I've used this app, I either missed or ignored this. Thanks for setting me straight.
