With the padlock closed, the shortcut will close all window tabs. On activating the shortcut again, the window with its tabs will be opened again. The advantage is that closed windows use less memory than hidden ones.

You can hide the 'nerdy' red dot that appears when there is network traffic via the Settings → User Interface

Show/hide shortcut always will hide FMail2, even when not running in the foreground
