Would be great to have a "collapse" command to collapse a single app or a group of apps into their stage manager window, without revealing desktop folders -- just a clean desktop, a quick mental/visual break.
Right now, you can collapse a group by:
- launching another app
- mousing to the desktop and clicking, but that also brings desktop folders front and center.
You can collapse a single app/window by minimizing the window, but if you try that with a group of apps, the app you just minimized becomes its own stage manager window -- the attachment to the group and the window position within that group are both lost. This preserves the logic of the original minimize function, but it's not that practical with a group of apps in a stage manager window.
You can hide an app, but then it isn't visible to click in stage manager.
