  1. No close program option

    I've come up with a new strategy, which is to minimise the Overwolf Web Browser window before attempting to access the option to Exit Overwolf by right-clcking on the Overwolf icon in the System tray and so far this strategy has either 2/2 or 3/3 successes.
  2. No close program option

    Nope. 3rd time hasn't worked. Back to option not appearing on right-click, so it's slack now if I get round to it.
  3. No close program option

    I think I might finally have cracked it. It seems if I first left-click on the Overwolf Icon in the system tray and then right-click it, the option to exit is there and doesn't disappear when i mouse over it, as it used to sometimes when I rIght-clicked without first left-clicking. Anyway, this new approach has worked 2/2 times so far, so it's 'so far, so good'.
  4. No close program option

    Ok thanks. It worked properly today but if it continues to be a problem in the future, I might do that.
  5. No close program option

    No, it didn't show the right-click options today even when I didn't close the Overwolf Web Browser window first, so either bugged pc or bugged app I think.
  6. No close program option

    I've realised that the options including 'Exit Overwolf' might fail to show on Right-Click only when I close the Overwolf Window 1st. Not 100% sure of this at the moment though.
  7. No close program option

    Well thanks for your help. As I said, I tried right-clicking on the Overwolf icon in the system tray and nothing happens. No options appear, so there is no 'exit' to click on. There was to begin with but it doesn't work anymore for some reason. I'm intrigued about why it seems to you that I 'have many apps open' and why you think 'I have so many processes in task manager'. When I said I closed 2 processes, but there were still about 8 running and that new ones opened, these were all Overwolf processes. Also, regardless of how many I have running, my concern isn't with other apps that may or may not be running at this time, unless this affects the pc's performance. My concern is with Overwolf, unless you're telling me I should also look at the behaviour of any other apps that may be running. I rarely do anything with any other apps, except Chrome, Microsoft Edge, a Microsoft weather app and Battle.net. I do keep Battle.net running and this is what i want for this app. I don't know how the web browsers or the weather app behave in this respect. There are 2 anti virus apps and some other things which I guess it may be best to keep open, but I rarely interact with any other apps than the ones I mentioned, as I say. Anyway, I may join Overwolf Slack, as you suggest. Thanks again.
  8. No close program option

    Yeah it takes an average of 11 clicks to close the program on this pc, so either the pc is screwed or Overwolf is awfully designed in this respect.
  9. No close program option

    In fact it gets worse. Last time I closed 2 processes, but there were still like 8 running, but when trying to close them, processes started opening. I mean like if I wanted to make the most awkward program possible, what would I do? Exactly this, unless maybe it's the pc or pc setup that's causing the problem. I don't know. Anyone else find it extraordinarily difficult to close Overwolf? Maybe most people don't even try to close it.
  10. No close program option

    Well it did work a few times, but now it's not working. I right click on the icon in the tray and nothing happens, so I'm back to having to scroll down a bunch of stuff in Task Manager and then close 3 Overwolf things to close it.
  11. No close program option

    Ah ok thanks.
  12. No close program option

    Users are expected to open Task Manager and close 3 Overwolf processes every time they want to close it? Really? This has to be a joke, right? This has amateur written all over it and it's a nuisance. There has to be a better solution to the complex problem of enabling users to close the program, like ... um .. i dunno... a cross in the top right hand corner which users click to close the program and a minus to minimise, like ANY NORMAL APPLICATION HAS? Surprising at it may seem, some people do actually like to close programs rather than have them running in the background when not in use.
