Tiny Suggestion

I'm not sure where to post this, or email, as I can't seem to find any links but I have a tiny suggestion for the most excellent Calibre software...

Can you make it so left-clicking the tray icon restores the software? Many programs do this by design.

Like I say, it's only minor, but it would be nice.

Thanks for your work. (I am a contributor.)

So does Calibre, the Windows version at least.

hmmm, it doesn't on my copies running on Windows XP (work) and 7 (home). I can right-click and choose Restore but left-click and double-left-click do nothing.

I run XP at home and Windows 7 at work and a simple left click restores calibre to its previous open Window as it has always done.

Don't know what to suggest.

What version are you running? Are you running the exact same copy from home and work via dropbox or a usb drive?

I had an older version at home (Win7) but I no longer use that as I decided to store my library at work (Win XP). My work version is the newest (I believe): 0.8.23.

Scratch that suggestion!

Prompted by the comments showing that it actually DOES do what I suggested I've realised that another tray item (TaskBar Shuffle) is actually stopping it working. When I close TaskBar Shuffle the click does indeed work.

Mighty annoying as I quite like TaskBar Shuffle - it lets me drag programs around in the task bar plus also allows me to middle-click to close programs.

Decisions....

Thanks all.

Ya just gotta love those program interactions
