    That is the correct way, there is a background service that runs to provide functionality.

    I am not talking about the Fing Agent Service.  I am talking about the desktop application itself.  When you close the application, it keeps running in the background until you go to the tray, right click the Fing icon and select Quit.  Is there a way for Fing Desktop to Quit when you close the Desktop Application.

    If you want to change the Minimize to System tray settings you can do that by clicking on version number of Fing Desktop on the bottom corner and click "Preferences".

    Robin, thanks for the answer.

    Hi @EMacUSCom
    Can you check under Task manager if the application is enabled to start up upon boot from there? The settings on Fing desktop seems to be fine.

    The application does not start up upon boot (this is not the problem).  
    I want the application to EXIT when I close the Fing App window; in other words, I do not want to have to go the system tray to right click and exit every time i want to close it all. 
    Is this possible or not?

    What is the answer to this? I too want to be able to easily completely close the app.

    If you are using Windows machine then you need to use Task manager to completely close the Fing desktop otherwise it will keep on running in background.

    Add me to the list of users who would like the Fing Desktop application to quit when I close it. Right now Fing Desktop 2.5.1 on Windows pops up a notification when I close it, saying that there's a Preferences option I can change to prevent it minimizing to the system tray, but looking in Preferences, there is no such option. That's unhelpful. Please add this preference so that I can quit Fing Desktop directly from the open window, instead of having to close the window and then exit the application from the system tray icon.
