@cindex icons (X Window System)
Most window managers allow you to ``iconify'' a frame, removing
it from sight, and leaving a small, distinctive ``icon'' window in its
place. Clicking on the icon window makes the frame itself appear again.
If you have many clients running at once, you can avoid cluttering up
the screen by iconifying most of the clients.

By default Emacs uses an icon window containing a picture of the GNU gnu.
The @samp{-nbi} or @samp{--no-bitmap-icon} option tells Emacs to let the
window manager choose what sort of icon to use---usually just a small
rectangle containing the frame's title.
Most window managers allow you to ``iconify'' (or ``minimize'') an
Emacs frame, hiding it from sight. Some window managers replace
iconified windows with tiny ``icons'', while others remove them
entirely from sight. The @samp{-iconic} option tells Emacs to begin
running in an iconified state, rather than showing a frame right away.
The text frame doesn't appear until you deiconify (or ``un-minimize'')
it.
The @samp{-iconic} option tells Emacs to begin running as an icon,
rather than showing a frame right away. In this situation, the icon
is the only indication that Emacs has started; the text frame doesn't
appear until you deiconify it.
By default, Emacs uses an icon containing the Emacs logo. On
desktop environments such as Gnome, this icon is also displayed on the
``taskbar''. The @samp{-nbi} or @samp{--no-bitmap-icon} option tells
Emacs to let the window manager choose what sort of icon to
use---usually just a small rectangle containing the frame's title.
