Now you can select if pressing the X (close button) closes the app or minimizes. You can use this feature and minimize to tray, to use the X as "Go to Tray" button. But this option make that always the app minimizes to tray.

I wish that pressing the minimize button, the app minimizes normal, and, if you press the close button, the app go to tray.

Greetings in advance.

    Options that we already have:
    - Close button [X] minimises main window instead of terminating the application
    - Minimise to tray instead of taskbar

    You'd need another option:
    - Minimise button [_] minimises main window to tray instead of taskbar

    But that would override/contradict the logic of the option 'Minimise to tray instead of taskbar'.

    How would you want the options set up, altogether, and still to be logical for the rest of us?

    I wish that pressing the minimize button, the app minimizes normal, and, if you press the close button, the app go to tray.

    Under that scenario, what is a person supposed to click in order to shut down the app completely? Or are you just assuming that users simply won't ever have any reason to terminate the program?

    Personally, I hate hate hate programs that don't behave "normally" when the OS-provided buttons are clicked. And to any and all programmers who might be reading this (not specifically TPTB at KeePass), I say: if you want to allow the user to do something that's more than just minimizing your program but less than shutting it down completely, make your own bleepin' button for it, and leave these buttons alone!
