Is it possible to add an option to set it "on desktop"?
Like the "on bottom" option but in a way that it doesn't disappear when we hit the "show desktop" button.

it's false alert due to UPX compression, you can set an exception in your AV, and if u have some suspicions, you can see the source code in the description
