To launch applications within spectrwm, start an xterm by pressing ALT SHIFT RETURN. Once you have an xterm, you can start any program you wish. For example, to start Control Panel type pc-controlpanel.

NOTE: spectrwm does not provide minimize, maximize, or close buttons within its windows. To close a GUI application, use CTRL-c within the xterm you used to launch the application.
