System Tray Notifications

Recommended Posts

They are currently enabled by default.

But some users think they are too repetitive.

What do you think about disabling them by default in future builds?

I think these are helpful for first-time/novice users. Perhaps an installation option, defaulting to On for new installations, which includes an informative message that the tooltips can be switched off in Settings?

I disable them myself but without having the protection status logged by default once again users wouldn't know if it was even working. Perhaps some type of 'heartbeat icon' could be flashed instead of the pop up by default. eg a big green check mark inside the notification icon for 3 seconds after the program starts or something like that so there is a visual notification but not the darned pop up?

I would be OK with removing the popup during default installs, reminding the user somehow that there is an option for notifications perhaps.

Then again, one could always go look in the settings to see the options available.
