(Sorry for the inconvenience)

WindowLab[1] is a small and simple window manager. It uses a window resizing mechanism that allows one or many edges of a window to be changed in one action, and an innovative menubar that shares the same part of the screen as the taskbar.

It follows a click-to-focus but not raise-on-focus policy. This means that when a window is clicked it gets focus, but it is not redrawn to obscure other windows. This allows one, for example, to switch to a terminal to enter commands while keeping documentation visible in a web browser.

Figure 6.15a shows a screenshot of WindowLab running on PC-BSD® 9.1. The right mouse button is pressed in order to display the top menu panel. Use the left mouse button or hover over a taskbar entry to open that application.

To add the applications you use most often to the menubar, select "Edit menu" while holding the right mouse button.

To leave the WindowLab session, select "Quit" from the menubar.
