Would it be possible to pin the context items from the taskbar icon
rather than having to scroll through the list of tunnels to get there?

The context items are

Manage tunnels...
Import tunnel(s) from file...
About WireGuard...
Exit

I have over 150 tunnel definitions and getting to those options is
awkward, to say the least.

Thanks in advance,

Phill

Would this small improvement be possible in a future Windows client update?

I agree that having everything in the context menu can be a bit
unwieldy. I'm not sure I can imagine what you proposed with regard to
a "pinning" mechanism. Maybe you can draw something in MS paint
describing what you have in mind?

I'm no Picasso, but take a look at the attached.

Essentially pin the standard set of options to be always visible, and
make the conf area scrollable.

Oohh ho ho, that is a really nice idea. I have no idea how to do that
with standard win32 API menu calls, but maybe there's some way. I'll
look around. I'm also CCing Alexander who is pretty savvy with that
sort of thing too.

No, that's unfortunately not possible with the stock Win32 menu.

However, it is possible to move the tunnel list to a submenu. Maybe when there 
are more than 10 tunnels. This would make the first level of menu contain only 
~5 items.

Regards,
Simon
