qBittorrent version and Operating System
qBittorrent 4.1.9 (64-bit) on Windows 10 x64
What is the problem
When qBittorrent is open but out of focus, clicking the icon in the notification area (tray) minimizes the app to the tray. This is awkward, as I want my first click to bring it into focus.
What is the expected behavior
Clicking the tray icon should bring the app into focus first. If already in focus, only then should it minimize to the tray when the tray icon is clicked.
Steps to reproduce
The app will minimize to the tray instead of being brought into focus, as I would want.
Extra info(if any)
Opinions on this may vary.
There's a similar problem with the taskbar icon (pinned) when opening the app from a minimized-to-tray state. It first takes a moment, seemingly to attempt to start the app, before realizing it's already running. It then lights up the taskbar icon, but doesn't bring the app into focus. That takes another click.
I suppose I could disable the tray icon altogether and get the behavior I want from the taskbar icon. But I like tray icons. :p It gives me the illusion that the app is running "more" in the background than on the taskbar, so it's less intrusive in my mind when not currently working with that window. I'm sure someone out there can appreciate this. It sounds like such a tiny insignificant issue, but it's been enough to turn me off from using qBittorrent for years.
