Minimize Copernic Desktop Search to the system tray

You can minimize Copernic Desktop Search to the system tray. This means that although the application window is not displayed, it continues to run. You will notice an icon near your computer clock. You can call this feature "running in the background".

Why should I keep Copernic Desktop Search running in the background ?

When Copernic Desktop Search is running in the background, it can keep on indexing your files and emails on the fly. Even when you are using the computer, it uses only a fraction of a second to index a file, without impairing your work or computer resources.

CDS also needs to run to perform automatic index updates.

How do I minimize Copernic Desktop Search to the system tray ?

You only have to click on Minimize to tray in the File menu or click on the X at the top right of the window to minimize Copernic Desktop Search to the system tray. Unless you especially click Exit in the File menu, Copernic Desktop Search will continue to run. To close the application completely, click Exit.

Close Copernic Desktop Search

You can close the software completely. Please note that when the software is closed, the indexing on the fly and scheduled updates do not take place.

To exit the software completely from the main window:

    • In the File menu, click Exit.

To exit the software completely from the tray icon menu:

    • Right click on the tray icon.
    • Click Exit.
Tip: Keep your index fresh by minimizing Copernic in the notification zone instead of closing it. This allows Copernic to carry out its indexing tasks.
