Using the SyncBreeze System Tray Icon

Background file synchronization operations are especially useful when configured to automatically synchronize one or more directories at specific time intervals. Another feature that greatly complements the background file synchronization capabilities is the ability to minimize the main GUI application to the system tray while allowing one to execute background file synchronization commands using the system tray icon's context menu.

SyncBreeze Options Enable System Tray Icon

In order to enable the system tray icon, which is available in SyncBreeze Pro+, open the advanced options dialog and select the 'Minimize to System Tray' option. With this option enabled, the SyncBreeze main GUI application will minimize itself into the system tray and allow one to execute background file synchronization commands using the system tray icon's context menu.

A minimized application may be shown at any time by clicking on the system tray icon. Another option is to click the right mouse button over the system tray icon and to select the 'Show Sync Breeze' menu item. In order to execute a file synchronization command in the background, click the right mouse button over the system tray icon and select a command item in the 'Commands' context menu. Finally, in order to close the SyncBreeze application, select the 'Quit' menu item.
