Managing multiple chat windows

Google Talk allows you to collapse, stack, and tear off chat windows so you can easily keep track of conversations when you're talking to more than one of your friends at once.

Collapse: To collapse a chat window so just the conversation status bar appears, click the gray space next to your friend's name. Collapsed chat windows offer privacy, without having to leave the conversation.

Stack: If you have multiple chat windows open, Google Talk will stack them in chronological order (the person you start talking with first appears at the top of the stack).

Tear off: You can tear chats off of your stack, starting from the bottom window. Drag and drop chat windows into a new stack if you'd like to re-prioritize your conversations, or you can simply place the windows on another part of your screen.
