[Solved] using mutiple terminal emulators

Hello,

I normally have several terminals (6+) open during work.
Some are temporarily closed to clear my deskspace.
In my old xfce (Debian Squeeze) I could recognise these
closed terminals and easily find the one I needed.
After my upgrade the new xfce shows all terminals under
one button on the panel and I cannot see which are open
and which are closed. I like the grouping, but the lack of
an open/close indication is a problem. Is there a way to
show their open/close state again?

Update: I use rxvt (and sometimes xterm), not one of the
multi-tab terminal emulators: I like my windows next to each other.

Since I have several problems I reinstalled xfce and all is solved now:
closed windows now have their name as [name]

Thanks

I don't know if there's a solution for this, but did you know that Terminal Emulator supports multiple tabs?

You can also set title on the current tab if you double click on it...

There are also some useful keyboard shortcuts...

imho "Window Grouping" in window buttons options is what you need ...

Further to papernick's suggestion:

with tabs, you call up a new tab with shift+ctrl+t, and can scroll through them (ie: "and easily find the one I need") with Ctrl+pageUp/down
