Usage

  • From the extension settings, you can click add button and select any opened window to put them in to tray

  • There are three options for each application.

    • Change active status: You can disable the minimization for specific application
    • Minimize window on start: Whenever a new window opens for the application, it will automatically hide and minimize to tray
    • Keyboard shorcut support: This adds global keybindings to application window visibility. It currently supports <ctrl>, <alt>, <shift> and 0-9, a-z keys. If there are are more than one window for specific application, it will focus to last used window.
