Which Tray to use? Is there a list?

Hi guys,

I’m in the process of setting up a new system and my tray application is ancient and it’s time for me to upgrade. Is there a list of tray applications anywhere?

What I’m looking for:

-Runs in Windows -Starts as a service (So I don’t have to log in to a user in Windows to launch the tray or syncthing after a reboot) -Easy to configure/set up.


You could have a look at: http://docs.syncthing.net/users/contrib.html

I don’t know if there are tray solutions which will install Syncthing as a service.

I would try, manually installing Synchting as a service (like the NSIS solution inside the etc/windows dir) and then placing a tray icon app in autostart/logon which points to the existing syncthing binary and web ui. At least some of them are able to connect to the running instance, if there is one.

Be VERY careful with this approach, and make sure that you run the service as the user whose files you want to sync, and not as a local administrator.
