In Snagit 12 there was an option in the preferences to "Enable notification Area Icon" this would open Snagit only in the System Tray avoiding using up visible space (taskbar or floating window) and still allow the use of all shortcuts.
In Snagit 2019 no such option exists, Snagit forces you to open the capture window that can not be minimized to the System Tray. So I'm obliged to have the window open every morning, then manually minimize it to the taskbar, and have bright orange logo appear on my taksbar.
Could you please provide some option to start automatically the application only in the system tray ? It is such a shame that you decided to remove highly useful option.
I am on windows 7.
