Graphical user interface
In a window oriented operating system, a graphical user interface which provides a "shrink button" to switch a window from a normal status where the whole window is represented to a reduced status where only a portion of the window is displayed while maintaining at least a partial operability of the commands of the window. The advantage of such a shrink button is that the user could be not interested in having the whole window displayed but he needs to keep the window commands operable. The user can so reduce the window to the command area only saving space on the desktop and improving the performances of the application, since the feedback is no longer required. In the image processing application this could be very useful.
