Option to Not Minimize/Close to System Tray

Now that Dark Mode is finally available in the desktop app, I have been using the exclusively on my desktops instead of visiting the website.

I would like the option for the app to actually quit when I close it, and not continue running in the system tray. It is a major annoyance when I close the app and the music keeps playing. As if I were working on a Mac where an application that is closed is never really closed until you force quit it from the dock.

I have seen a few older threads requesting the opposite - that the app minimize/close to the system tray. I can understand how that would be preferable for some, but I prefer to exit apps completely when I quit them and not have to take the additional step of expanding the system tray to quit the application.

Can a setting can be included to let subscribers choose the behavior when closing the app?

Thank you

Until Deezer launches that feature, you could use Monitor to kill Deezer process or using a command in your terminal.
It should be optional. I lost a few minutes trying to figure out how to deactivate it... 😞
