By default you will see the full GUI layout with all the buttons:
But, if you prefer you can use the compact mode where you will only see the titlebar and the help line (where the help information and errors are shown):
To switch between the two modes use the little arrow button in the title bar.

You can access the “General settings menu” from the tray icon menu. It looks like this:

To know more about it please go to it’s documentation page:
Show elapsed timeDefault: Disabled
How much time it takes to run an action?
Each action have it’s own complexity and the time that it will need to complete will depend on this particular complexity and some particular aspects from your setup (screen resolution, number of monitors, etc…)
You can enable the “Show elapsed time” option to get a prompt in the helpline when an action have finished:
Full screen lookupDefault: Disabled
By default spGhost only detects the content that are physically inside of the Substance Painter main window but, we know that you may want to have some panels located outside the main window or in a second or third monitor so, you can set the “Full screen lookup” to allow spGhost to detect content from all your screen space (of all monitors).
Please note that this will need some extra processing time so be considered and check this option only if needed.
Open/Show properties after adding effectDefault: Disabled
Enabling this option will automatically open the properties panel if it’s closed or it will show it up if it’s docked in a secondary position at the end of an action that adds a layer effect.
Reset search after selecting an assetDefault: Disabled
If this option is enabled, whenever an asset is selected, the searchbox of the asset manager will be reseted
If it’s enabled, the custom action buttons will be displayed in the gui
Show custom action buttons onlyDefault: Disabled
If enabled, only the custom action buttons will be visible in the spGhost GUI. (If this option it’s enabled and the “Show” option is disabled, spGhost will be setted to “Collapsed mode” automatically)
Use small buttonsDefault: Disabled
If enabled, the custom action buttons will be rendered in a smaller version
