Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It depends on your window and/or session manager. Under RHL you have a choice of number of them – so make clear which one you are using (Gnome, KDE, TWM, probably fluxbox, blackbox, Xfce).

All of them have a kind of panel and panel applet which holds icons/buttons for minimized applications. It’s possible, if you remove the applet from the panel, to lose track of minimized windows. So, help system, FAQs and READMEs for appropriate window/session menager are you best friends (as usual).

    Try to add add the window list applet to gnome panel. Right click on gnome panel/ taskbar (assuming you are using gnome) then select add to panel, here you can select utility & then click window list. Hope this helps to overcome this issue.
