Running the "Killer Intelligence Center" without dashboard opening on my screen at startup

LagunaJim

Installed full "Killer Performance Suite" and also the Universal Windows Platform (Microsoft Store) app "Killer Intelligence Center".

 

1)  Does the "Killer Intelligence Center" need to be running (in the system tray) to reap the benefits of the Killer services?

2)  If it is necessary, how can I stop the "Killer Intelligence Center" dashboard from opening to my screen on startup but instead have it launch quietly in the system tray?  I know how to disable it from starting on windows boot, but then it's not running to provide benefit.

3)  Do you folks think the Killer benefits are worth running the services and the intelligence center?

 

 

Thanks! /jim

Hello LagunaJim

Thank you for your patience in this matter.


After reviewing further your questions, we would like to share with you the following answers:

1- Yes, the Intel® Killer™ Intelligence Center does need to be running in the system tray.


2- To stop the Intel® Killer™ Intelligence Center dashboard from opening to the screen on startup, please search for startup on the Windows Search bar and disable the Killer Performance Suite using the toggle to switch off. This shouldn't affect the Suite's functionality (e.g.: the service running in the background).

Note: Make sure you are updated to the latest version of the Intel® Killer™ Performance Suite to enjoy all the benefits. (To update, performing an uninstall and reinstall may be needed).


3- That is a situation that is dependent on most users. For example, users who have multiple network activities running at the same time while gaming can make use of several Killer features.


For any other inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us back.
