Tray icon suggestions


Recommended Posts

Just realized Speccy can show CPU temp and other stats in system tray, and it's the only program I've been able to find to actually color-code the icon based on the temperature, but I would really like if some improvements could be made to make it more useful:

  • Allow the user to set what colors are used (background and text) for different thresholds, also set by the user. For example, I could make it green for up to 50, yellow for 51-70, orange for 71-90, and red for 91+. And to be able to set it with a transparent background and those colors for the text, or with those colors as the background and text as a different color, or whatever combination I prefer, would be a nice touch.
  • Add an option to show a degree symbol next to the number.
  • Add an option to close to tray (it currently can be set to minimize to tray, but if it's closed instead of minimized by accident, the tray icon goes away as well).
  • Keep the tray icon visible when the program is displayed.
  • Allow the tooltip to be customized to show different stats the user wants, and not those they don't.
  • Add memory as an option for the tray icon.
  • Allow multiple tray icons.
  • Add a CPU power usage (W) stat and add that to the tooltip.

I was just trying to figure out if I can change the color, size, and font of the Speccy Tray Temperature display. If there is I don't see it. I've been paying for Ccleaner Pro for many years now. I use the free version of Speccy though. I don't see any real advantage to pay for the Pro version of Speccy. If you add some custom features to the Pro version people might buy the upgrade. Add the ability to customize the color scheme and background on the console and change the tray color, size, and font. If you do that I would pay for the Pro version of Speccy. It looks like other Temperature Monitoring apps have user settings that do that. You haven't released a new version of Speccy in quite a while. Maybe now is the time.
