    I just installed 7.0.209 on three Windows 10 64-bit Pro machines.  Now I find that the configured remote PCs aren’t listed in the context menu for the systray icon.  Why not?  Seems to me a feature was lost.

    With this release the overall design of the player has changed, as it now offers a unified and centralized way to access
    servers, configure settings and much more to come in the future releases. Since it keeps running once it gets started, the
    Machines panel can be quickly accessed to start a new connection and a list in the tray menu is no longer needed, because
    it was a way to provide the same functionality and ease of access we’ve now in the client.
    So you haven’t lost a feature at all. Rather you’ve gained a much more organized and streamlined UI.

    I have to disagree with the “not needed” part.  It’s more clicks and I end up with an extra window to close.

    Although I see where NoMachine is trying to go – I completely agree that this is a lost feature.  I found it very easy to launch sessions and would very much like to see it back as an option…

    I can understand your point-of-view and I am sorry that you don’t like the new design of the connection monitor which has remove the session links. The development team have taken note. However, to have a duplicate, a copy-cat, of the main window in the system tray would make little sense.
