This would be one possibility:


Con: Development is more extensive as we need to find icons. But it might be generally interesting to add some interface to SystemWindow & ToolBuilder that allow making the list of window buttons more customizable.

Another problem here: The model would be responsible for delivering an icon matching the UI theme and preferences - unless we write some automatic icon transformation stuff (such as Android uses for its notification area).

Here is another option:


But I think this positioning of the button would be way too prominent.

Are you imagining a third option? :-)


(PS: the "toph" in my name is actually helpful in order to differentiate me from Chris Muller (cmm) :-))

This is a good improvement but it needs better visibility. Instead of
tucking the single/dual switch within a tiny menu button in the title
bar, you could
  * place it in a separate button, or
  * add a menu bar along the top with some of the frequently used menu
items in the right click menu and then place it there.

Then it will be just a single click away.
