Re: Spatial Mode Window Cluttering and Possible Solutions

Most peopel care about the content of inside the browser/document/etc. windows. On the other hand, they rarely care about the content of the parent folders (usually the only time they care about it is when they want to copy/move some file(s) to the parent folder(s)). If they don't care about the content, the logical thing to do is to hide/close it.

I am still wondering how much the "window clutter" really troubles
people, from an efficiency point of view. I do know that lots of
people complain that they get lost in folders if there is many of them
on the screen, but I bet most of them manage to work with other apps
opening multiple windows (or, who can truly claim that he has only one
browser window open at any time?).

There is adequate ways to close multiple windows at the same time, and
windows can be minimized if they really are in the way. The only
really troublesome thing is the taskbar, but that is mostly the
taskbar's fault IMO (I don't use it, and I am quite happy).
