Disabling Quick connect Window
1 Attachment(s)

Is there a way to disable the Quick connect window from automatically appearing each time I launch SecureCRT?

Best regards,

Hi ashehata,

Disabling this dialog can be a little tricky and has caused confusion for many of our customers, so you are not alone! :)

I have captured a feature request on your behalf to make it easier to disable the Quick Connect dialog at startup. We will be sure to post here if an improvement is implemented. If you prefer direct notification, please send an email to with ***Feature Request - Forum Thread #14505 *** in the subject line.

The Quick Connect dialog box was implemented in such a way that it will always be displayed if there are not any saved session in SecureCRT.

You should be able to disable the dialog if you connect to a session using the Quick Connect dialog box with the "Show quick connect on startup" option disabled (as it already is) and the "Save session" option enabled. Once you press "Connect" you can close the session and re-test (as the global option should have been updated with the preference to not show the dialog box).

If you use the Quick Connect dialog box to connect to a session with the "Show quick connect on startup" option disabled (as it is already), is the issue resolved?
