How to run applets but hide them

I want to hide volumeicon but when I remove exec --no-startup-id volumeicon from ~/.i3/config, the media keys doesn't work. I want it to work but at the same time, hide the program that makes it work.

The options are quite limited. You can use:

# disable system tray
bar {
    tray_output none
}

https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html#_tray_output

Per specific applet you would need a complete DE, like KDE Plasma, that has those options. :slight_smile:
