Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist

Minimized Window Icons

Minimized window icons appear on the desktop when a window is minimized. The icon should represent the application that controls the minimized window (see Figure 4-5). These icons are different from the icons used in the Front Panel in that they represent running applications, although they are the same size.
