If I set Bitcoin Core to start on system login, the option to "Hide tray icon" and "Minimize to tray" become disabled. On my system (Pop_OS!) This causes bitcoin-qt to be neither on the system tray, nor in the taskbar when I minimize it, and I don't know how to make it show again.

Is there any reason for these options to be disabled?

How can I make it show again in this scenario?

Example of disabled options

    See "Compatibility" under bitcoincore.org/en/releases/0.21.0 - if you can repeat this under Ubuntu it might be worth reporting to BitcoinCore . If unable to reproduce under Ubuntu I'd report it to Pop_OS. Feb 17 at 11:40

    This occurs when Qt (the GUI library Bitcoin Core uses) detects that there is no system tray available. I don't know how you would resolve that, but it is a starting point for further research.
