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

All that setting did was to add a shortcut to the Desktop Manager to your Startup group. You can do that yourself.

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

That is not the answer, that does not minimize it to the "system tray", only to the taskbar, which we all can do anyway, duh....read the posts before you post a non-solution. Your solution is no solution.

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

Oh Ok!  Wow you got me!

Boy am I embarrassed. Solution is a no solution. Darn that's harsh.

 

What are you 6 years old?

 

Obviously you do not know how to talk to adults even when they are trying to help you.

 

You have 3 posts that  essentially translate into:

 

1)  stomping your foot and demanding they put it back immediately

2)  a negative guess about a utility so your going to run away.

3)  duh....read the posts before you post a non-solution . Your solution is no solution.

 

That's your contribution to this forum. Hopefully that will be your total contribution to this forum.

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

 

 

"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?

Programers think that their program should be the only one on your PC so each time BlackBerry releases a new desktop they remove any feature like that until they get enought complaints to put it back in.  That said why do they make you start over with a new sync etc. with each desktop release? It always seems to find conflicts that were never there before, so you go through the tideous click by click to see if something was messed up in your records that have had no complaints since the last time you updated your desktop.

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

No, I am almost 60 and I was writing code in the 70's...And, yes we all are tired of releases of software/code that takes away functionality. I won't bother to post here since we all have to wait for BB to update anyway. But learn to read and understand the issue before you post, you'll be less embarrassing to the group.

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

I wonder what the rational was to change it? I would like the option back to minimize to the system tray.

[ Edited ]

It appears that this app underwent a major re-write (possibly assimilated from another company), so it doesn't surprise me that some of the minor features were overlooked.

We just want RIM to recognize our request and add it to the list for the next release. :smileywink:

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

I found a way to Minimize BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 to the Windows System Tray.

 

I purchased a new BlackBerry Torch 9800 and a new feature appeard on the Desktop Manager called "Wi-Fi Music Sync".  Wi-Fi Music Sync will allow you to sync music between your BlackBerry and Desktop computer via a wireless network. 

 

Activating the Wi-Fi Music Sync will allow you to minimize BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 to the Windows System Tray.

 

I realize that this is not a solution for all but it appears that BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 was designed to work with the new features of OS 6.

 

Just wanted to let you all know that it is possible to minimize BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6 to the Windows System Tray.

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

PLEASE fix this, RIM. I can't believe I did this upgrade. I tried to downgrade and it won't sync with the old version any more. Thanks a lot, RIM. PLEASE fix this.
