Drop to background when copy feature #3253

Type of change

  • New feature (non-breaking change which adds functionality)

Description and Context

Fixes #2498.
This feature enables the user to drop the window to the background when copying any property of the entry to the clipboard. This results in a quicker copy/paste experience.

I have added a new setting called HideWindowOnCopy. If enabled, the behavior will be determined on which radiobutton is selected (either MinimizeOnCopy or DropToBackgroundOnCopy). This means that from now MinimizeOnCopy will be by default true (so that at least one radiobutton is selected), and the application will set the first value of HideWindowOnCopy to the original value of MinimizeOnCopy, so if the user had this option enabled, it will be kept as before.

Testing strategy

Manual testing:

  • Tested with 'Hide window when copying to clipboard' both enabled and disabled
  • Tested with both 'Minimize' and 'Drop to background' settings
  • Tested copy/paste functionality from the context menu, keyboard hotkeys and the TOTP dialogs
  • Tested the config file with the currently existing MinimizeOnCopy config both enabled and disabled, it correctly honors the user's original setting

Suprisingly, the Windows build passed in this PR. I say surprisingly because I rebased this and #3303 at the same time to develop (to resolve conflicts), and in that PR the Windows build is failing, yet in this one it passes. Not sure why.
