I have created an autostart shortcut with --no-console --no-browser under Windows 11 Home. Nevertheless, a console window always opens automatically. When I close this, it is no longer possible to log in. What am I doing wrong?
This is a known issue with the new Windows Terminal. You either need to change the console type to “legacy” (see https://learn.microsoft.com/windows/console/legacymode) or set Syncthing to “run whether user is logged on or not” using the Task Scheduler (see https://docs.syncthing.net/users/autostart.html#autostart-windows-taskschd).
There is also a way to start programs hidden using PowerShell (e.g. see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1802127/how-to-run-a-powershell-script-without-displaying-a-window) but this method isn’t documented anywhere when it comes to Syncthing specifically.
