    It would be nice if there was an option to allow the X button on a Windows app (the Windows "Close" button) to hide the app in macOS rather than close it completely. It would bring the X on Windows at least a little closer to the X on macOS. That is, it wouldn't completely close the app.

    Hi ksigorini,

    You can try "Keep running in background" feature, available in Pro and Business Edition.
    Let me know if it does what you expect.

    Isn't that for the whole VM and not individual apps?

    You are right, it is for VM.
    I understand now what you want to achieve, thanks.
