Are you sure that SC is closed when you press minimize or you just did not know that it hides to windows notification area on taskbar?

sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

Hello, thank you.

I'm pretty sure he's really closing. When using SC, the SC icon is placed in Taskbar, when enter on this Taskbar Icon, SC is Closing,
SC is also closing when enter Windows Minimize in SC Main Form?
See Appendix, please.

I am sorry, I was not able to reproduce your behavior.
I did just in this moment tested with latest portable version

I wonder why your Notify Icon is yellow, mine is always Blue.

Anyway, I tested with "Minimize" and "Close", both do not take any effect on Notify Icon.

For now I can't be of any help to that matter, sorry!

My Testmachine:
Windows 10 x64 with latest updates installed.
ScreenshotCapture portable unregistered.

It is possible that the OP checked the option 'Hide tray icon completely', but as the rest of the caption says, that's not recommended, so this option should better be unchecked.

This option is on the 'Miscellaneous Tweaks' preferences page.

But than he would not be able to integrate Notify Icon on screenshot, or am I wrong?

Another suggestion from me to find out more would be:
Use a third party tool like ProcessHacker, open ScreenshotCapture, open ProcessHacker (or similar)

Find inside Hacker ScreenshotCaptor Process and let that Window open.
Open SC Window and do like you did (press minimize or such), is now the process terminated?

Hello, thank you for all the attention. I've send you a Word file as rar, with my personal Screenshot Captor settings, I hope you discover a Settings failure?

@james48 if the SC icon stays in the system tray after closing the main windows, it means that SC is still running.
You want the window to minimise to the taskbar? AFAIK this not possible.
Like KodeZwerg, I wonder why the SC tray icon is yellow (anyone ?)

Hello Tom, I dragged the Screenshot Captor Icon from Hidden below it to the Taskbar, when I am taking a Screenshot, the Icon is yellow, when taking a Screenshot is done the Icon color is back to normal, if I minimize SC, and then I double click on the Icon, it will come straight reappear! It also works from the hidden situation.

But before, I remember, it was also possible to click on the Icon on the standard Taskbar, but now the SC Icon is moving to the right corner below.

For me this Topic is solved

Many thanks for all the help of you all.
