When I use the Portable App Platform in Windows 7 & Windows 10, the platform responds differently in the OS versions.
So when I use the Platform on a system like Windows Vista. the platform responds as normal with in the task bar's notifications.
But when I use the Platform on a Windows 7 or 10 system. The Platform Shows on my task bar as a window and bury the notification in the hidden icons. And I looked into the Platform settings and fond nothing that changed the settings.
(Simple terms, Win Vista has notification, Win 7 & 10 has notification and window on task bar)
