Activating iconification with patch 03

If you have installed patch 03 (or 02 and then 03) on Icaros Desktop 1.3.3, you'd may be surprised to see that nothing has changed - at least in the user interface - in drawers and windows. The fact is that window can be iconified, but there's nothing to do that on title bars. So how can you iconify a window? The answer is that a button exists, but you have to enable it by yourself: just go to the Prefs drawer and run the Zune preferences program. Select the Windows option in the left menu and check for the Control section. You will notice four buttons called M, S, P and I. Click on the I button as shown in the image below. Click Save and reboot. From now on, you will be able to iconify (almost) all your windows.
