    This is one of the most annoying things about RingCentral. Please get this feature added.

    Hi everyone, this has been delayed. The engineering team confirmed this is currently an Electron limitation, We are waiting for it to be fixed in the electron module to then be corrected in the RingCentral app.

    Hi Everyone,

    Back in May when Brian reported that the app still does not open in minimized when the settings are updated, this was escalated and reported as a bug. The ticket is still open with the engineering team, when I get an update as to when/what version of the app it will be resolved in, I will update this post.

    Run minimized does not work for me either. This is very annoying.

    Yup, setting the shortcut properties to Run: Minimized does not work

    This does not work! I tried it, tried it with your tech support, and he was not able to replicate either! This is not what professional companies do to run their apps minimized in Windows.

    This setting is available through Windows. Follow these instructions:

    Step 1: Right-click on the shortcut of the program you want to start minimized and select Properties.

    Step 2: Select Shortcut tab

    Step 3: Under Run, select "Minimized," then click the OK button.

    I am a long time customer of yours. The absolute worst thing about your product is how it smacks me in the face every time I start up my computer. I hate this! Microsoft does not do this, Google does not do this. Nobody does this except Ring Central. Why do you do this?

    Please advise if and when you create a setting so the application can load minimized on startup. It is important to have RC running, and I don't care if your logo shows up for a hot second, but please do that and then go away!
