We have heard the concerns of our users and created the option to minimize the 'Recent Connections' group. Pleae update the application and enjoy using TeamViewer! Thank you, this is a huge help, but is still just the first step. Why is there still no option to remove this list entirely if we want to? If there was a setting in the "Options" area that said "Disable 'Recent Contacts' list" that you could either check or un-check, that would please everyone. Those who want to use the list can leave it enabled. Those like myself who never, ever want to see this list because it's utterly useless to us and just gets in the way can easily check the box, and voila! we never have to see it again. Just because a feature is deemed to be useful to a relatively small group of developers sitting around a boardroom table, does not mean that it will be a feature that everyone wants to use. By always allowing the option to be either enabled or disabled (unless it's a core feature that is necessary for the product to work properly...which this is not) you can avoid threads like this in the future, where people have to express how utterly peeved off they are that you are forcing changes upon them. Because that's the thing that makes my blood boil quicker than anything, when someone takes away my choice of whether or not to use something. If there's anything you guys take from your users, it is this little bit of advice: do. not. force. changes. with. no. option. to. disable. them. if. they. are. not. wanted. E.v.e.r. Why do you think so many people hate Microsoft right now, with the heaping, steaming pile of garbage that they call Windows 10? Or Firefox for becoming more & more "Chrome-ified" every day and removing options that people like myself have utilized since day 1? (Most) people like choice. Take away their choice and they get peeved off. This is not rocket science.
