To hide Host side popups/windows

Hi Teamviewer support and the community,

We are an outdoor advertising company, installing and maintaining digital screens that run commercials. Currently, we are trying to migrate from old remote access software to Teamviewer. Maintenance that we do on the screens should have a minimal reflection on the display so customers and pedestrians see nothing other than playing content. So far all is good except a couple of things:

1. File transfer informational popup. With the latest TeamViewer host version (12.0.77242) that popup stays on the screen even when the session is closed, which is absolutely unacceptable in our case. So my questions are:
   a. Is is possible to suppress that popup at all?
   b. If not, is it possible to make that popup autohide?
   c. if not, is it possible to hide it after the session is closed?

2. The session list panel, I figured "Automatically minimise local TeamViewer Panel" setting makes it autohide, but it does that after 10 seconds or so. We need to eliminate or minimise any other than the content windows.
   a. is it possible to suppress that panel?
   b. if not, is it possible to autohide it without the delay after the connection is established?

Any help is very appreciated,
Levon

I also use TeamViewer in a manner where I am very sensitive to the host side display.  I hope there is some way in which the Host Display Panel can be completely eliminated in an unattended session.

Re: To hide Host side popups/windows

Hi Everyone!

Sorry, I know I am jumping into this quite late.

TeamViewer is not surveilance software. We always make sure that the end user is always aware that there is a connection being made to their device. Because of this it is not possible to hide this message as it is the notification to the end user.

This is also part of our commitment to making sure the software is safe and secure and that people can feel safe with TeamViewer on their systems.

I understand this can be frustrating for public displays, the only thing I can reccomend is what Bartlanz reccomended - Either a virtual monitor or second monitor set as the primary display.

Re: To hide Host side popups/windows

why not make it minimize to the task bar in its own tab so that it can be accessed and not interfere with display when it is not wanted... I am wanting to use this to access a computer that is hooked up to a tv to play video files on a tv screen from a laptop at a remote location from the tv. This is the best way I have found but it really irks me to see the teamviewer logo on the right side of my movie the whole time. I do like the time and effort you put into the side barstyle tab but if you put it onto the tab bar it would be more practical and efficient. please consider this in an update... thank you for you time i hope you understand.

Hi krb,

This setting only refers to the Main Application Window on the remote side. It is not referring to the connection slide out panel that appears on the bottom right of the remote side.

Re: To hide Host side popups/windows

Any chance we could have an option to move the panel to another corner? I have an application in which I need to see data, and mouse hover/right click across the bottom of the screen. Top left or right is fine. Many applications allow other corners.

Regarding surveillance, I agree with the principle, but the argument doesn't really hold water. The host has to give their ID/password to the client user, and the default is dynamic passwords. I assume many TV users are out of office, controlling their own desk computers, running complex installed apps which cannot be loaded onto their mobile machines.

Please at least consider the multiple corner option.

Forget this, I see version 13 has floating windows.
