desktop dissapear when platform on

I have set the w7icon to be onnly in the tray and not in the task bar.
However, this has the effect that all contetents of the w7 desktop are hidden as long as the platform is on.

How can I hide the icon in the task bar and have it only in the tray but keep the desktop?

I was using mainly the 1.6 Platform so far , so all such effect are somehow new to me.

Check the

Check the PortableApps.com\Data\PortableAppsMenu.ini file and see if the [DisplayOptions] section has an entry for HideDesktopIcons=False.

  • If it isn't there, add it.
  • If it is there but is set to True, change it.
  • If it is there AND is set to False AND it appears after the entry for HideDesktopIcons, try moving the entry for HideDesktopIcons to the end of the [DisplayOptions] section.

menu closed

Note: Only make these changes with the platform closed, otherwise the changes won't be saved.

Yes

Was in a rush to get out the door when I wrote that, thanks for picking up my omission.
