Anytype minimizes when clicking on the close (X) in the top left

Describe the bug
When you click on the X in the top left to close Anytype it only minimizes the program. To close Anytype you need to right click the icon on the start menu bar of windows. Then select Close.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Open Anytype
  2. Click on the X in the top right to close
  3. Anytype minimizes

Expected behavior
Expect Anytype to close iso minimize.

System Information:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Anytype Version: Anytype Desktop 0.23.5

Additional context
This might be related to the other bugg I just reported: Multiple Anytype processes keep running after closing


Many other tools (like MS Teams) have the same behavior although in MS Teams it is configurable:

Maybe this could be a feature request to allow the same setting instead of a bug report?

I thought anytype is about to respect users. If i click X i mean close the window.


It could indeed be a feature request, but as a default behavior on Windows, it is definitely a bug.

Especially since Anytype used to close normally.

Still the case in 0.25.0

Nope, for me it is solved as of 0.25.0
