    Looking for it, cant find it in latest V15. Found below in old post, but I don't even see a preferences under the provisioning Tab.

    -----

    In order for the softphone to start in CTI mode, you will need to change the Call Control Preference in the Extension Settings. Go to Extension Settings >> Provisioning Tab and under Preferences >> Call Control change the option to "IP Phone" and re-provision. This will force the client to start in CTI mode.
    As for the client, during the installation of 3CXPhone a shortcut is placed in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\ so it will automatically start when user logs in. If this is not happening, check in the above folder and make sure that there is a 3cx client shortcut in there.

    After clicking the phone provisioning tab, hit the "Your phones" drop down and select "3CX Client". Then you should see the option about half way down.

    I guess that depends on what you're trying to accomplish. CTI mode lets you control your physical IP phone vs using a soft phone. Below is a section from the admin manual.
