I mean, it needs the ability to iconify a window in place. Especially as more people move to larger screens and multihead displays… I’ve got all this real estate on my screen but my only choices are full size and the taskbar?
And we know it can live-thumbnail an application because it does it on the taskbar:
So why not let me shrink/thumbnail windows in-situ. It would declutter the task bar a ton.
Update: It seems some people are having a hard time grasping this simple concept. I’m not talking about resizing a window with its contents remaining the same size, I’m talking about replacing the window with its own thumbnail.
The window in the example, for instance, isn’t resizable. And that’s fine, but I really don’t need that much of my desktop taken up by what amounts to a progress bar. I also just didn’t want it minimized to the task bar.
What I wanted was the thumbnail – shown in the second picture – but stuck to the desktop like a living icon, in the location of the original window itself.
Maybe I just multitask a lot more than most people *shrug*.
