User Story

As a PRTG User, I would like a configuration option in the Settings of PRTG Desktop that allows to "start in tray".

Details of User Story

The latest PRTG Desktop application is a nice addition to PRTG Network Monitor. I especially like the system tray notifier. I would like it running at all times, but when it starts up it always launches the full window in addition to the tray. I would like to start it only in tray. Setting the shortcut to start as "minimized" as well as a batch script that runs "start /min" does not work.

Acceptance criteria

  • option in the Settings of PRTG Desktop that allows to "start in tray" only.
