Re: Sprint SmartView

I've used mini mode once or twice but I wasn't as concerned with the desktop space (not using Always on Top). The large button in my taskbar is what drives me nuts.

Re: Sprint SmartView

You can reduce the size of the application by clicking the 'trangle' next to the minimize window line '_' in the top right. Running in mini mode helps conserrve some desktop space. Just dont set the application to 'always on top'.

Re: Sprint SmartView

I've been in contact with some folks at Sprint and they are pushing to get the "minimize to system tray" feature back into the SmartView Client but it may not happen until the next major release.

I appreciate the suggestion to use Trayer, although it won't be practical for us as I'm supporting a business environment with 60+ Sprint Mobile Broadband Cards.

Re: Sprint SmartView

Until Sprint decides to give us back the "minimize to system tray" function we can get around the problem with an application called "Trayer" http://www.kfsoft.com/trayer/intro.htm

It will convert the taskbar button to an icon in the system tray.

Clyde,

I used version 1.13.0010.0 last Wednesday and I also didn't see the option to minimize SmartView to the System Tray/Notification Area.

Hi,

I installed it, unfortunately they still forgot to give us the option.

clydebassie,

I'm still running version 1.12 and I haven't found a solution to the minimize issue. Yes - it's annoying with the amount of space it takes up.

I see there's a new version 1.13.0010.0 which I've insalled buthavent had a chance to use yet. I hope to try out the new version in the next couple of days and we'll see what it offers.

Re: Sprint SmartView

Hi mdriest,

Have you found a solution to this? I also can't minimize to systray and it's annoying to see it just sitting there taking up space.
