More information:
Manage all instances of an application's window(s) upon their creation/destruction. Hide/display them dynamically without loosing functionality. This allows you to use other applications in your solutions but hide the fact that they exist. Or, it can simply be used to manage your own application's windows w/o having to iconify each one in the system tray. The configuration console lies quietly in the system tray receiving global window creation/destruction messages from the operating system and then acts accordingly to manage these windows.
