Backstep draws desktop icons for minimized windows. Backstep is a program that draws icons for minimized windows on your desktop. It works in conjunction with various window managers or dekstop-drawing programs. It allows windows to be identified by position rather than with a taskbar. It also provides the ability to group windows together so that when a window is shown or hidden so are all the windows in its group. It provides session management support and a graphical configuration dialog to edit the icons' appearance.
