A small request, but huge for me!

I value the systray real estate a lot and would greatly
appreciate being able to remove the icon from it. To
restore, seems like it'd be easy to add an option to the
log window or to the config.txt. But then again, I am not a
coder :)

Thanks in advance,
Jason

    You can already change this in the config file.

    Thanks for the response, but I don't see a solution based on it.
    I'm running Privoxy v3.0.3 on w2k.

    The only option in the config.txt file that looks like it, is section
    "4.2. toggle"- in the notes- "The windows version will only
    display the toggle icon in the system tray if this option is
    present." But no change of it ((toggle 0/1) or commented out)
    makes a difference.

    So please help! Which option in the config file affects the tray
    icon? TY

    I think its better to have web-based toggle functionality for this feature.
    I just noticed that on Privoxy 3.0.5 if you start it as a service that you wont get a tray icon at all, no matter your setting in config...
    So if you want to get rid of it on M$-OS then start it as a service...

    PS: I started Privoxy 3.0.5 as a service using a normal user account.
    (I made a special Privoxy user belonging to only the users group.)

    Hi, i'm using Privoxy v3.0.6 on WinXP SP2.
    Neither the toggle option nor running as a service works do hide the tray-icon.
    Any solution? :(
