General Settings
General settings enable you to set your own preferences for the general functioning of Docsvault application.


Let us discuss various check boxes and button for setting general preferences.


Start Docsvault on system startup
When selected, Docsvault application will start when you startup the system.  Docsvault application icon appears in system tray (at the extreme right of taskbar).


You may startup Docsvault's main window by double clicking on the system tray icon.


Docsvault Viewer:

You can set your preference to open PDF and Image files in Docsvault Viewer by default.

Idle Timeout - Auto Logout
You can also setup an Auto Logout feature in Docsvault for more security. In Auto Logout feature, the application logs out the user and rests in the system tray, if the system remains inactive for a certain amount of time. You can re-run the application after entering the login password.
