It seems that a window is pinned -- stuck in place -- when the pin is in the vertical position. Clicking the pin so it becomes horizontal allows the window to minimize with a tab showing. That seems to me to be unpinning the window. EG Help says that minimizing is pinning.
Would someone please confirm that EG Help is correct? Thanks.
I agree with you - the help documentation appears to be back-to-front! If the pin is vertical, then a window is stuck(pinned) in place, and clicking it to make it horizontal allows it to minimise(unpinned) and reduce itself to a tab on the side.
Thanks. I see what you're saying. But I see the icons as saying something different. In Windows XP style, the vertical pin is replaced by a pin that is seen above and to the side. The idea is that the point is pressed into something. When I pin a paper to a cork board, the pin gets pressed through the paper into the board. And it stays where it's pinned. If I would describe that as "unpinning" the paper, well, ....
