#1533 Disabling icon in tray not working?

P. Zaccaria

On some accounts I would like the privoxy icon not to be shown in the tray.

In the config file I have:
# The windows version will only display the toggle icon in the
# system tray if this option is present.
#toggle 1

But the icon is shown anyway.

What am I doing wrong?

Windows XPSP3
Privoxy 3.0.18

    Thanks for the report.

    You aren't doing anything wrong, the documentation was incorrect and will be fixed for the next release.

    The toggle state is not supposed to affect the presence of the tray icon.

    You can prevent Privoxy from displaying the tray icon by running Privoxy as a service and not giving it permission to interact with the "desktop".

    This is not a Privoxy option, but a Windows option that works for any service. I don't think it can be controlled for each account individually, but currently have no access to a Windows system and thus can't check it.
