Hi,

We want to create an application that essentially lives in the system tray.

When a user wants to do something, they right-click on the icon, choose what they want to do from the context menu of system tray, and that starts the GUI with the choice they made.

If the user closes the GUI, the system tray application stays running.

We cannot easily figure out how to do that in MAUI.

Please suggest on this.
