Start Dropbox Passwords Minimized

Helpful | Level 5

If I set the Dropbox Passwords program to start automatically at system startup on my Mac, is there a way to have it just minimize to the tray like the main Dropbox program does?  I want the integration with my browser to work, so I have to have the program open, but needlessly having to minimize it each time the sytem starts seems like an oversight.

 

I tried adding it to my login items and hiding it, however the program seems to ignore this request and it stil starts as a full size program. 

 

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

I want to ask this as well. This needs to be implemented into an update soon. There should be an option to minimize Dropbox Passwords to the system tray or taskbar so that it doesn't pop up everytime you log into Windows.

I have the same question. I have even disabled Dropbox passwords from the startup apps, but it still automatically loads and opens the full-size window on startup.

Thanks for the feedback on this matter, @LDale.

 

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!

Seriously this is SUCH an annoying issue that I'm thinking of uninstalling Dropbox Passwords completely.  The only application that opens maximised when Windows starts up.  Ridiculous!
