Left click Notifications does nothing


when I left click notifications, it does nothing. I have to right click and select from the menu. I am not sure if this has been raised before, but how about making a left click open Todoist. That seems like a logical result of a left click.

Hi Matt,

Our entire menu for tasks is through the Right-Click which is the normal process for windows apps. Is that what you are referring too? Right click, Reminders?

Yes that is what I am referring to. When I left click any other item in my notifications bar, something happens. So it is not my experience that the normal process is right click.

Hello Matt,

You can double-left-click the TD icon in the notifications area/system tray to bring back the app from being minimized, but you can also use Ctrl+Alt+T or Ctrl+Alt+A to do so.

The right-click menu contains some rarely used options, please let us know which ones do you use very often so we can better understand the use case.

Best regards,

Thanks. I didn't notice the double left click. Thanks, that is not a bad option, and I will use that. I guess the underlying comment is that left click is a pretty normal event in Windows, even in the notification bar, and for it to do nothing seems strange to me. I would have expected it to do the most sought after event - ie open the app.

Thanks for your reply.
