In the system tray, I have 3 Desktops. I don't need 3; I only need one. How do I decrease the number of Desktops, and remove the widget from the taskbar altogether?

Also, the windows are stretching to fill the whole taskbar. This is annoying. How do I disable this (basically, make it more like Windows XP, or earlier versions of Puppy Linux.)

I'm running Precise Puppy 5.4.3.

Subject description: for jwm
 

hi James..

for jwm, use jwmconfig - do the section for virtual desktops and select "1" for the number desired. Possibly you may need to reload jwm

to remove the pager tray item, you can comment it out in /root/.jwmrc-tray .. then edit for maxwidth (in pixels) attribute of tasklist buttons. Here's a sample snippet from an older version of jwm (there may be other attributes for array layout in newer versions)
Code:
      <!-- Additional Pager attributes; width, height -->
      <!-- <Pager/> -->

      <!-- Additional TaskList attribute: maxwidth -->
      <TaskList maxwidth="120"/>

      <Dock/>
, then simply reload jwm after you save your edit.
