Description of problem:
Sometimes I'd like to minimize all applications to have a look at my desktop or
open just a single application. So, just like Windows has, it makes sense to
have this in the right-click menu of the Window List applet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

You can use a keyboard shortcut to perform the "Minimize all".

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-11-04 22:08:36 UTC
In 8.0 there's a Ctrl+Alt+d shortcut. Current GNOME devel versions have a 
panel applet that's a button to do the same thing. 
Having it in the right-click menu on the window list grippy doesn't seem totally
crazy, though it does arguably violate the UI guideline that 
right-click menus contain items that affect the object you right-clicked.

Anyhow, we should report this bug to bugzilla.gnome.org for discussion (and
include a link here to the gnome.org report and vice versa).
