[Newbies] window collapse and remain on world?

Not quite what I want I guess tho. Would actually like to keep the taskbar as well as having an option for minimizing windows to the World.
Doesn't look like that's in the cards at the moment however.

Now in sq3.10.2-7179dev08.11.1 it appears this has been replaced by the window collapsing to the task bar at the bottom. I'm not sure at what pint this started working this way.
