Hide Cubase/Show Menu

I’m having problems with plugins taking ages to close in Cubase

I was using version 7, and I thought upgrading to the latest version (v9) would solve this but that is not the case.

While I certainly don’t regret the sale, I’m of the view it is really the plugin version (2.4) on Windows 10 and that the old fashioned MDI windows are finally being outed.

That said, if there could be a way to Hide the program, e.g. from the System Tray or Jumplist that would be great.

By the same token, it would be excellent if you could take the mouse to the top of the screen and the Cubase menu bar appear without having to ALT + TAB

Thoughts welcome
