Minimizing, Maximizing, Restoring, and Closing Windows

When you wish to get a window off the screen temporarily but have its program continue to run or its window instantly available, you can minimize it. To do this, you click the Minimize button in the top right corner of the screen (Figure 11-3). When you do this, you'll notice that the window appeared to zip down to the Taskbar. Technically, the window is still "open," so it appears on the Taskbar. To restore it, just click its button on the Taskbar.

If you need more space to work in an application window, you can maximize it to cover the entire screen. Just click the Maximize button in the top right corner of the window. If you maximize a window, the three buttons in the upper right corner of the window change. The Maximize button is replaced by a new button, called the Restore button. If you click the Restore button, the window returns it its original size.
