    I'd like to keep the hub open in the background so that it's quick to jump between projects and so that I can continue downloading other versions of Unity while working. It's just a little annoying having to reopen it every time. I would love for the settings page (which currently has only the Editor Folder Location setting) to have a checkbox for "close Unity when a project is opened."

    Seconded, I may need 2-3 instances of Unity open and it is a bit of a pain to re-open the hub each time for project I need to open and/or install a new/needed version of Unity.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll look into making this option for a future Hub release. Previously, we did keep the Hub but did receive requests to minimize on editor launch. It would make sense to make this an optional setting.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    Yep, still wondering what Unity Hub is bringing if these basic features which make a hub a hub aren't there?

    So yes, I believe a hub is supposed to be
    - persistent,
    supposed to let you manage your files such as deleting and moving them around,
    - locating them automagically
    - and letting you install diff versions of Unity.
    in a nutshell :)
