  1. I still want the systray *app* to be disabled and am thankful to be able to disable it. Thank you, Eii, for the info. When the time comes to uninstall, I can simply delete the empty pseudo-file that I created and return the filename of the original file to its original name.
  2. That is exactly why toggle control should be allowed in Options. I am okay with it being on by default, but I want to turn it off.
  3. Eii, thank you! That worked great. EdH, auto-sync still works. The main problem here is not the "icon", but the extra "app" to which the icon belongs. Sorry if I was not clear on this. Systray icons typically belong to a separate app/process from the app's main process. Therefore, merely hiding the icon does not achieve the goal. In order to allow revert back to original operation in case of causing app errors... Instead of deleting "EvernoteTray.exe", I renamed it to "EvernoteTray_DISABLED.exe", then created the text file and renamed it as Eii had suggested. Seems to be working perfectly so far. The fact that the tray app/icon cannot be disabled seems to cause it to behave as pure "bloatware" in my case - which I hate. I cannot think of a single use case for myself where Evernote is not "visible" - at least not for more than 30 seconds if I happen to go to a different app's window.
  4. That is unacceptable. There should be an option to disable it. I always have all icons showing.
  5. I do not want a system tray app/icon; it seems to be bloatware and clutters up my system tray. I did not see how to disable this in the Options. Please add an-easy-to-find checkbox in Options to disable the system tray app/process/icon thing.
  6. Thank you, jefito. I think I will go ahead and delete it. Size = 52.8 MB. After further review, I think the setup folder was created by the manufacturer of my computer (Lenovo), along with folders for other programs they include on a new computer. I think the SWTOOLS directory serves as a home for Lenovo-sponsored software setup stuff. I think I was confused because I had gone straight to the Evernote website to download/install instead of navigating through a local link provided by Lenovo. I know Lenovo did pre-load a setup program for MS Office. I removed the setup program for MS Office via Control Panel because I do not want or need MS Office. ...and I found the location of the program folder: C:\Users\Jimmyhosen\AppData\Local\Apps\Evernote\Evernote Size = 225 MB. I think I had set it up for my user only, instead of globally for all users. Works fine.
  7. Evernote 6.4.2 on Win7Pro. Question: Is it okay to delete C:\SWTOOLS\Evernote, or are the contents actually necessary? The Evernote website (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=176617) has a problem that prevents me from "creating a ticket" to report a problem or make an inquiry. I go through the steps of dropdown menus, but no link to create a ticket appears at the end. Thus, I am posting to this forum. I installed Evernote on my PC, but Evernote created a setup folder at C:\SWTOOLS\Evernote and failed to delete this stuff after installation. The folder seems to only contain setup automation files, including EvernoteSetup.exe. I do not see any files that seem to be for the installed program itself. Also, I am not sure why I do not see a folder for Evernote in C:\Program Files nor C:\Program Files (x86). Where are the program files located? The program works normally.
  8. Hello, I am using Windows, not Mac. There are no Evernote add-ons listed in my Firefox. The offending process is EvernoteClipper.exe
  9. I do not want the Clipper. I have no use for it, yet it continues to run after I have closed Evernote. There should be a way to completely disable the Clipper via the Options menu, so that it never runs. It is ok for it to be "on" by default upon installation, but users should have the option to completely disable it. Maybe a better thing would be an "Enable" checkbox that is checked by default upon installation. Users could then uncheck the box. This is really ticking me off.
  10. Hello, EvernoteClipper is making me angry because there seems no way to control it and it uses resources on my fairly old computer. There is no way to turn off the Clipper in the Options. The process always runs, even when I exit Evernote. I am sick of having to end the process manually via Task Manager. I do not use the Clipper. I do not want the Clipper. Is there some way to delete the Clipper without making Evernote crash?
