Program stack

While working with program stack Hide Master's work area contains the table that holds all the information about the programs that were hidden by using hot-keys combinations. Every new hidden window is added on the top of the stack. You can influence hot-keys functioning by changing component's position in the stack. Hot-keys combinations that restore the visibility of the program usually pull out the copy of the program that is on the top of the stack. Hence, you can change the order of appearance of program's copies from the stack.

  • Program
