#315 Feature Request:Add About... to the systray right-click menu

Ray Dixon

It would be handy if we could have the About...
selection (from the Help menu) on the System Tray
icon's right-click menu.

    What is the benefit of that? No other known app running in
    System Tray like Outlook 2003, messenger, VirtuaWin,
    support that there.
    We do not plan to do so.

    There are several other known apps that have this. Running
    in my sys tray right now are Google Desktop Search,
    RealVNC, LookOut, w.bloggar, and McAfee VirusScan
    Enterprise - each of which has an About... option on its
    systray icon right-click menu.

    As for the benefit, it wouldn't be huge, but it would be handy
    to be able to check the version I'm running without having to
    open the whole UI. I figured it wouldn't be too difficult nor
    time consuming to add since there's already an About dialog
    available and we could just call that same dialog from an
    added right-click menu item.
