A technique for the display and manipulation of windows resembling real-word objects in an object-oriented graphical interface displays windows without substantial borders, continuously displayed title bars, scroll bars, and various graphical icons and symbols that surround the information in conventional windows. Window components are provided to support window manipulation functions such as MOVE, SIZE and CLOSE. A slide-up title bar with a close-box is generally kept hidden behind the window until dragged-up by the user when desired. Thin borders, which are used to conserve screen real estate, may be manipulated to perform a CLOSE operation with a "flicking" gesture or perform a SIZE operations by dragging the window's border. Moving a window may be performed by clicking a "whitespace" area and dragging to a desired destination.
