Remove Overwolf Dock and Overlay

Some people enjoy Overwolf. I do not. It infringes on what I want my OS to do. At least with the Twitch launcher, I didn't have that problem. If you really want to wrap them together, then let me disable the Overwolf features I don't want to use. A good example is the overlay entirely and the dock thing. It's just annoying and detracts from the experience.

    Rebumping this, I -just- returned to wow and went to get my mods refreshed and saw this awful update.

    Who at curse forge honestly though having that thing stuck to your desktop was a good idea with no way to remove it?

    Is there an actual way to remove it? It reminds me of some ridiculous browser popup you cant get rid of.

    Dock CAN'T be disabled, unless there's a hidden setting that can be set somewhere. Don't know why admin below posted that second image as if it showed where you can disable the dock altogether. It doesn't, it just prevents it from appearing while in a game. What's wanted is for it to be completely disabled.

    You can just pin the app in overwolf you use to the taskbar or desktop and you won't need to start overwolf to use the apps as well.

    This picture team overwolf posted has no button on it anywhere that disables the overlay.

    Uninstalled immediately.

    In other words, it's only pseudo-disabled.

    Kind of sort of. The dock is still there if you click on the button to maximize overwolf, and it doesn't go away. I appreciate you reading this comment though. I would love it to be completely disable-able (Overlay too).

    Overlay and dock can both be disabled from the Overwolf settings panel which can be accessed from the trayicon by right clicking on the OW logo.
