> We can’t just make “click in the corner” the action to minimize.

I am using “show extended icons”… it’s just a nag to aim and click on the right icon – it’s easier just to go directly into the corner and click (as said: once set-up I’m not using the menu any more). So if you would have an option – “Do {minimize|show menu|else} when clicking on black” (and then replacing the icon that is not the default in the extended icons) that would be OK. You could also always draw the menu extended icon. You can always switch to the menu using CTRL-ALT-0 – you could warn the user if he changes the default that the only way to get back the menu is by using the hotkey (or maybe right clicking in the corner? :)).

If that is not possible at least provide a minimize hotkey… like CTRL-ALT-9 (or configurable).

> add an exit button to the NX menu: only way to exit on Windows is to use ALT-F4 or switch to task manager and kill-it.

You misunderstood… To reproduce (I’m using the Linux client):

– fire up NX Client, expected: you see the menu with a list of connections – don’t connect to anything!

– now try to exit: I can exit only with ALT-F4

> Are you asking why is the menu an overlay and not a window that you can move inside the remote desktop?

No. I just thought that the ‘menu’ would be a normal windowed application and not show full screen. Opening a new connection would result in a new window opening up. You would have then 2 (normal) separate windows, one the ‘menu’ the other the ‘connection’ (they would be listed in the taskbar)… I could then switch to the menu window again and fire up another connection resulting in 3 windows. Well… I see now the drawback of this solution: to change any settings in the current connection you would have to go back to the ‘menu’ window since there would not be any overlay within the connection.
