The following functionality is updated in the Solaris 8 6/00 software release.
This chapter explains how to use Graphical Workspace Manager and the Window List GUI.
Graphical Workspace Manager enables you to operate a workspace control panel. This panel displays a window that contains a miniaturized picture of each workspace on the desktop. You can create, delete, rename, tile, or cascade workspaces. Application windows can be moved (within or between workspaces), terminated, reduced to an icon, or maximized.
When you click on Workspace, the menu shown in Figure 3-2 appears.
Add Workspace - Adds a new workspace. Select Add Workspace and type a name for your new workspace in the Enter new workspace name field. Click OK.
Delete Workspace - Removes a workspace.
Rename - Renames an existing workspace. Type the new name into the dialog box.
Switch To Workspace - Moves you to the workspace you want.
Cascade All Windows - All top-level windows in the workspace are layered in a downward fan-style for easier viewing.
Tile All Windows - All top-level windows are displayed in one workspace next to each other either vertically or horizontally.
