    I'm running Passwordsafe from Dropbox, installed using the option to not use
    the registry.

    When I want to close Passwordsafe on Windows XP I can hit Escape (with the
    correct option configured) or the button on the top-right. However in 64 bit
    Windows 7 both of those option merely lock and minimize the application. In
    order to actually close the program I have to ALT-F4, or go through the File
    menu. How can I correct this behavior?

    Because it's run out of Dropbox and is not using the registry it's running the
    exact same executable on both laptops, should be reading the same
    configuration settings, and is loading the same database file so I don't see
    why it does what I expect on my XP laptop but not my Win7 laptop.

    Are you using the '-u' and '-h' command line switches?

    OR

    Are both

    the XP %COMPUTERNAME% exactly the same as the Win7 %COMPUTERNAME%

    AND

    the XP %USERNAME% exactly the same as the Win7 %USERNAME% ?

    I'm using no commandline switches.

    The usernames are the same, but the computer names are different.

    I did confirm that the 'Escape key closes application' option is checked on
    both laptops. I only had to set it on one of them.

    Look at Manage >Options | System

    System Tray

    Put icon in System Tray

    On your XP that option is probably not selected, but on your Win7 it probably
    is selected?

    Review the help file regarding configuration which are stored based upon both
    %COMPUTERNAME% and %USERNAME%.

    Yes, that corrects it. Thank you very much.

    I didn't know that configurations were stored by host and username. I naively
    assumed that only one set of configurations were kept. Is there a way to
    override or default that so that any machine I log into with the same username
    will have the same configurations for non-security related settings?

    See in Help file Command Line Arguments -u username and -h hostname
