I like being able to see all my windows, and I'm sure this kind of OCD can't be exclusive to me.
How do you organize your windows on your screen?

I enjoy doing that when i have a high resolution.
is your screen 1024 wide? if it isnt then you are probably gonna get a lot of scrollbars.
I use the resize window add on to make my browser 1024 wide and then i make it as tall a it can be. And on a mac any other windows blend in very well. Like i forget they are there. and then i move to the bottom left corner and it shows all windows in expose.

Yeah, haha.

I keep my taskbar in a specific order though.. It's always Firefox, Winamp, whatever program I'm using for a project or school, then AIM. :3

Primary monitor is 1280 wide. I only use my other one (1680x1050) for gaming.

Yeah I just let them float around organically LOL. Then do use pseudo-Expose to bring my windows back up. Although for me, my IM client has to be the first thing in the taskbar.

F*CK YEAH DA FUNK.

I like me some browser space (count 'em - menu bar, tab bar if applicable), so if I have a browser open and active, I'm usually on fullscreen. But I have a bunch of shit hidden in the taskbar icon space thingie so that it doesn't take up tab space.

I've always got a bunch of shit running, but it only ever looks like two or three programmes.

Also organise my browser tabs alphabetically... :\

I just hide the windows of whatever application I'm not using, generally.

That, mostly. Unless I'm multitasking at work and split screening.

Same here. Except for my taskbar it always has to be iTunes, Safari and then everything else. Depends on what I'm doing/working on.
