SmartCAT has both a System Tray and a Task Bar icon. Is there a way we can contain it to the System Tray only like DAX?

Consider setting the Task Bar to "auto hide" in Windows...will accomplish what you want and will give you more space on the screen.

It's not a space on screen issue, it's a useless program issue. It shows up in ALT+Tab and has an icon that is too similar to SmartSDR and can cause confusion when clicking.

SmartSDR is a system daemon, I have a feeling it's inclusion in the task bar is the result of a missed check box in the project build properties.

We have an enhancement /program change request entered to make CAT behave the same as DAX.  It should be addressed in a future version of SmartSDR CAT.  Thanks for the feedback.

Moving it back to the Tray is the right place for this.  Thanks!

+1.  I'd also like to see work to differentiate the status bar icons too.
