- is this ALL true? To my (lack of) understanding, if I press Close, MPC will merely close the file, and stay in position on screen, not Close-and-minimize-to-systray. But of course, MPC also has hundreds of keys and settings, I might not have reached the proper combination yet.
Now you've provided more info, so:a)
MPC-HC will minimise to the Taskbar
and perform as I said above regarding the BossKey.b)
If you have selected to use the Tray icon, it will minimise to the Tray icon when you press the BossKey but will not re-open when you double-click another video file - as you found with SPlayer.c)
When I click the Close button in MPC-HC, it closes...period. The file closes, the interface closes, the program exits. It doesn't Minimise-on-Close and I can't find an option for that.d)
If I select File->Close or use the keys for Close, then it does as you describe. There is no Minimise-on-File Close option.
