TrayStatus Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I install the Free version of TrayStatus?

TrayStatus uses the same installer for both the Free and the Pro version. If you don't enter a license key during the installation, you'll get an automatic 30-day trial of the Pro features.

After the 30-day trial is up, TrayStatus will automatically revert to the Free version. If you'd prefer to revert TrayStatus to the Free version before the end of the trial, please follow these steps:

  • Open the TrayStatus Settings window
  • Click the License Key tab
  • Click the "Change to Free Version"
  • Click Apply

After performing the steps above, TrayStatus will revert to the Free version, with the Pro features disabled. After reverting to the Free version, you'll no longer receive message box prompts to upgrade to the Pro version.

  • Cleared the license key from the TrayStatus Settings > License Key tab and applied the settings (reverts TrayStatus to the Free version)
  • Completely uninstalled TrayStatus

Custom Icon Themes

To create a custom icon theme, take a look at a pre-installed icon theme in the TrayStatus installation folder, for example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\TrayStatus\Icons\Light Icons". Create a new folder in "%appdata%\TrayStatus\Icons" with your icon theme name, and put your new icons into that folder. Your icons will need the same names the pre-installed theme icons.
