change in window hide / minimize functionality

Hello, I just upgraded from foobar2000 v1.3.13 to v1.6.5 and the window minimize / hide functionality has changed in a way that I don't like.

I had the old version setup so that clicking either the "Minimize" or "Close" window button would hide the window and remove the icon from the taskbar. Additionally I had a keybind bound to "View / Hide" which would do the same thing and hide the window when pressed.

This no longer works. In order to not have the player terminate when I click Close, I have selected "Close hides" under "Default User Interface" -> "Background and notifications" -> "Window minimize and close". But this means that clicking Minimize no longer hides the window, nor does my keybind function in the desired way.

How can I get the old behavior? I don't like the new behavior at all, and I'd rather not have to go back to the old version. This seems like pretty basic functionality, but I've gone over all the options and I see nothing that will fix it.

I've searched prior threads and found people asking for how to hide the taskbar icon in general, and that's not what I'm asking. I do want the taskbar icon when the window is visible. I've googled, and all the results are people asking about minimize to tray in the older versions before this was changed, which does not apply.

The silence has been deafening.

If you found this thread from Google and are having the same issue, you're screwed. I have reverted to v1.3.13 and it looks like I will be stuck using this old version forever, because nobody seems to care about "improvements" that remove functionality.
