What are the commandline options for PRTG-Desktop?




I would like to automatically start PRTG-Desktop at systemboot in Fullscreen. Is there a commandline option for this? I couldn't find any documentation on the matter, but i've found out, through testing, that option "--v" prints the version number of PRTG-Desktop.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, we do not have any command line options for the PRTG Desktop app. You can have the Desktop app automatically started by going to File>Settings>Notifications.

Kind regards,
