Possible to minimise Clipboard Manager window to keep it easily accessible?

Hi

I'm liking CBF very much so far, but there's a nit that I can't seem to solve.
I'd like to keep the Clipboard Manager window open or at least easily accessible, but it disappears whenever I change focus to another app that overlaps it. This seems a bit odd since isn;t that the primary app window?
(I have "Keep CM open afer losing focus" enabled.)

My ideal would be to have it as an app window that appears in the task bar and can be easily restored, liek normal apps. Is this possible?

I spotted the option to keep it on top but that will interrupt screen layout.
Then I tried to set the taskbar icon to stay visible thinking I could click it (not ideal as it's tiny) to restore the CB Manager window but there seems be no option to do that.

The only way I can find it is to right-click the taskbar icon and then it magically reappears, but I'd really prefer it to be a proper app window.

Strange, with that setting enabled it shouldn't disappear when another program is focused. Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:
  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

We don't currently have an option to show the clipboard manager window on the taskbar, but I've added this to our feature request list.

Thanks!

No, it disappears when another app window overlaps it as one would expect when the "CM always on top" option is disabled.
The issue is how to make it reappear easily as it's not a "proper" app window.
Right-clicking a tiny taskbar icon is quite hard when it's a common task.
Also when it appears and one clicks on a CM list entry it disappears again!

Funny I just requested similar functionality in another thread. What I did, which still isn't ideal for me but better than having the Clipboard Manager window block even a small area, is change the Tray icon settings > Tray Icon Click Action > Single Click Action > Hotkey: Show History Menu

At least now the clipboard is one-click away via the task tray and always opens on top.

Just spotted this, it definitely helps - thanks.
I'd never have guessed that History Menu was the same as Clipboard Manager!
