twm is a very small window manager which is included in the Xorg distribution. However, it is mostly used when no other window manager is available. Configuration is done in ~/.twmrc

In the default configuration of twm, the title bar has two buttons:

  • Resize button (nested squares): the user clicks here, drags the mouse pointer to the edge to be moved, then releases when the window is the desired size.
  • Iconify button (circle): reduces the window to an icon.
