Window Managers IceWM is a lightweight window manager for UNIX-like systems. Although widely used, it is often underrated - there is hardly any IceWM-related content on the Internet. This article is my attempt to share my experiences as a longtime IceWM user. It contains tips and tricks, usage scenarios, and makes use of examples whenever possible to better demonstrate IceWM's features and capabilities. Finally, the article is meant for those with some familiarity with UNIX, but who are new to IceWM.

typing "mozilla" is much easier than moving windows out of the way to expose some icons in the background.

You do it your way, I'm OK with that. Just out of curiosity, isn't there a keyboard shortcut in IceWM to make the root window (the "desktop background") visible quickly?
