Windows taskbar tray icon

Hello to everyone who reads this, I was thinking to suggest to make an taskbar tray thing, and remove need for window. That way it won’t hurt people look of workspace in front of them. here is imgur link of what i mean

Yes, this has been a feature request since the very beginning (e.g. see from 2014 :slightly_smiling_face:).

At the moment the recommended solution is to use a 3rd party wrapper like SyncTrayzor or SyncthingTray (and many others listed at, although most of them aren’t maintained anymore).

Of course, the above is for the tray icon, as the console you can hide just by starting Syncthing with the -no-console flag.
