Closing a Window to an Icon

When a window is not in use, you can close it and keep it on the Workspace for further use. When closed, an application becomes an icon--a small symbol that represents the application. If you will not be using that application for some time, you can quit it entirely--which clears it from the Workspace--and start it again later. Figure 1-3 shows the icon for the Text Editor application. (Chapter 3, Text Editor discusses Text Editor in more detail.)
