Add option to remove options from system tray right click menu (especially 'resume all' and 'pause all')

Post by lastninja »

I have thousands of torrents, mostly seeding but some that are 'to be downloaded possibly one day on a rainy day'. Hundreds of those.
I migrated from utorrent to qbittorent recently. And I've been enjoying it.
But, when going to the system tray to right click and 'exit' the other day, I accidentally clicked 'resume all'.
This caused hundreds of torrents to start downloading that I didn't want to.
I had to quickly rush to stop/pause them all so that I didn't download lots of stuff I didn't want right now, and then delete the incomplete files after that.

I would love for an ability in settings/options/advanced options to modify the system tray right click menu. At the very least, to remove the options for 'resume all' and 'pause all' as these are settings I will NEVER use and will only cause me grief if I accidentally ever press them.

That should be solved with confirmation modal window.

Are you saying there should be a confirmation request when you click it, to confirm if meant to click it?

I'm saying propper solution to your problem would be adding confirmation dialog window to confirm "resuming all". Currently there is no such feature.
You can ask for such feature on https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues (as very first message in this forum branch says).
Beside that quicker solution might be turn off displaying QB in notification area.

I have made a suggestion on the github but will update it with the idea for confirmation
