So you mean like in Windows ? What exactly are you looking for, something that shows programs running like in the background with pretty little icons on the panel ?

Yea sorry i didnt explain miself properly ... yes like windows system tray with the little pretty icons ... its just that im having a bit of difficulty with having 2 or 3 amsn open + yahoo messenger + Licq + broswers + any other proggy that i generally have running, really crams up the taskbar.

Also is there any program like the ctrl-alt-del in win XP? something that shows any application that is running.t
Thanks [Edit: excellent i just found it ctrl-esc]

Another thing .. i kill my taskbar (with ctrl-alt-esc) .. i was just wondering the command to reload it up
