We don't want to be "connected." We don't use the Connection Client for anything except licensing. We only have one account per computer. In other words, these icons at the top right corner of Microstation are totally useless to us. In fact, they cause "visual noise" (clutter), and make it harder to find what you're looking for. Also, this causes users to waste time, trying to figure out what these are, even though we don't want or need them.
How do I turn the display of these icons off?
This is a standard Common Application Header. It will be common to all Bentley apps and is similar to other Windows apps UX. We will investigate the ability to configure it.
