as title I'd like to reduce WhatsApp Desktop application to icon instead of application bar. Like in all chats like Skype, Messenger etc. to run it in background.

Actually when i press reduce, it goes in application bar while if I press close, it just closes the application.

Windows / Chrome

You want to minimize the application to system tray.

I do that for many programs that I have including Whatsapp.

You need to install a program that supports that feature.

I use "Actual Window minimizer".


It is not a free program. But you can find free programs that can have this feature.

You can do a search and you can try the free one in the below link that I did test on it last year and works fine.


I never tested it on Windows 10 but I was using it on Windows 8.

You can search for similar apps in the below link.
