I’m running Syncthing 1.20.1 on Windows 11 Pro (x64). I’ve followed the instructions for getting Syncthing to autostart via the Startup folder:
In a nutshell, those say add a shortcut to:
with the following in the Target line:
C:\syncthing\syncthing.exe --no-console --no-browser
Those instructions state:
Syncthing will now automatically start the next time you log on to your user account in Windows. No console or browser window will pop-up…
But, 1) upon starting the computer, up pops a terminal window showing the status of Syncthing starting up and syncing (it stays open), and 2) when I close that terminal window, Syncthing shuts down on the computer and my phone disconnects from it. Trying to browse to:
results in an error message:
This site can’t be reached
127.0.0.1 refused to connect.
- Checking the connection
- Checking the proxy and the firewall
Going to c:\syncthing and double-clicking on the executable starts it up again (with a console window popping up), but, once again, when I close that window, Syncthing quits.
Did I miss something in the instructions? Could this be because of the change from the old command line console to the new Terminal in Windows 11?
