Please DO NOT use this to publish your entire wish. This Forum is for specific suggestions to enhance the usability of Cumulus MX for all users, NOT your personal requirements. Please check this forum and the rejected forum to make sure you are NOT posting a DUPLICATE suggestion. It will be heavily monitored by Admin and Mark Crossley to determine the feasibility and the difficulty of the suggestion. Those Topics that are deemed inadmissible will moved to the rejected Forum. The remaining Topics will be the Accepted list of future developments, and when our voluntary development group adds it to a build, the build number will be added to the Topic title.

Open to Notification Center

Post by KE5BM »

In Windows 10, is it/would it be possible to have the engine minimize to the notification center as opposed to staying open as a normal program in the taskbar? Much like Cumulus 1 could be set to open on Windows startup but open to "the tray."

I hadn't thought to try that. I've never attempted to install an app as a service so I'll look into it.

A good starting point is the Cumulus MX documentation: https://cumuluswiki.org/a/MX_on_Windows ... _to_run_MX

Well, I can safely say that this was a task I had never done before so at the very least I learned something. Got it running as a service after learning a little bit about how to use PowerShell. Thank you for the assistance!
