BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6.0 - Minimize to System Tray?

I installed BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 and have discovered that there is no way to minimize it to the system tray.  Is this option in there and I'm just not finding it?

 

I like having the Desktop Manager minimize to the system tray because I sync via BlueTooth and whever I walk near my computer the syncing will start.  This is one of the reasons I love BlackBerry.

 

If minimize to system tray has been removed from BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 then please add it back in a future version.

 

 

Thank you.

Re: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6.0 - Minimize to System Tray?

Hi all,

 

 

Same thing, this feature was quite practical, what a stupid idea to remove it ! Looking forward to getting it back in the very next update.

 

Another on the wish list for the next update : latest saves/synchro display properly. This seems to be a bug. For one of our 2 BBs, we got a number of saves and the new Desktop keeps saying "never saved". For the other, there were 3 saves after the one displayed and the display never updated...

 

Thanks in advance for the next update !

I most certainly agree, this upgrade is like a downgrade...please put back the functionality of minimizing to System Tray, immediately!!

May want to use a 3rd party program until this is fixed?

 

Something like TrayIt  looks like it will minimize any program to the tray.

 

(I've never tried it, just Googled it.)

Unfortunately, that program does not work in Windows 7...maybe I will go back to the older desktop manager until there is a fix.

Re: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6.0 - Minimize to System Tray?

I miss this feature too.

 

Seems that another option is also missing: run the Blackberry Desktop Software when the Windows starts. Or is this setting available somewhere?
