System tray icon

Post by mapomme1108 » Fri May 27, 2016 12:23 pm

Hello,

I use Transmission on Window 10.

I want to know how to minimise Transmission and disable (not hide with Windows settings) the system tray icon.

Thanks per advance for your help.

Excuse me if my english is not good, I am french

You minimize Transmission as any other window, with respective button in its titlebar. If you meant something else, please elaborate.

Same goes for disabling/hiding the tray icon; I'm not sure what would the difference be. If you want something other than what's available in preferences then my guess is you'll have to modify the source code and build it yourself...

thanks for the reply, i have similar question. I have put transmission in my start-up windows but every time i start windows transmission pop all over the screen. I would like to keep it minimize on start-up like my other application. Is it possible ?

Qt client supports a number of CLI options which you could see by running it with `--help`. Probably a bit more complicated on Windows, so here it is (note the `-m`/`--minimized` option):

Code: Select all

% transmission-qt --help
Usage:
  transmission [OPTIONS...] [torrent files]

Options:
 -h --help                  Display this help page and exit
 -g --config-dir <path>     Where to look for configuration files
 -m --minimized             Start minimized in system tray
 -p --port       <port>     Port to use when connecting to an existing session
 -r --remote     <host>     Connect to an existing session at the specified
                            hostname
 -u --username   <username> Username to use when connecting to an existing
                            session
 -v --version               Show version number and exit
 -w --password   <password> Password to use when connecting to an existing
                            session
