In Unix computing, CTWM (Claude's Tab Window Manager) is a stacking window manager for the X Window System in the twm family of window managers. It was created in 1992 by Claude Lecommandeur from the source code for twm, which he extended to allow for virtual desktops ("workspaces" in CTWM's terminology.)


Features of the CTWM window manager include:

  • Stacking windows
  • Written in C
  • Support for up to 32 virtual desktops
  • Advanced icon management
  • Animated icons and backgrounds
  • Customizable
  • 3d titles and borders
  • Freely distributable under the GNU General Public Licence
  • Rudimentary GNOME support and backwards-compatibility with twm.
  • XPM and JPEG images
