NAME
       Marco - The MATE	Window Manager

SYNOPSIS
       marco [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       Marco  is  a minimal X window manager that uses GTK+ for	drawing	window
       frames. It is aimed at non-technical users and is designed to integrate
       well  with  the	MATE  desktop. Marco is	a plain	window manager for the
       adult in	you; Many window managers are like  Marshmallow	 Froot	Loops,
       Marco  is like Cheerios.	It lacks some features that may	be expected by
       traditional UNIX	or other technical users; these	users may want to  in-
       vestigate  other	 available  window  managers for use with MATE or as a
       standalone window manager.

       Marco supports several somewhat advanced	but common  features  such  as
       Window  Shading/Roll-Up,	 Window/Edge Snapping, Vertical	and Horizontal
       Maximize, Always-On-Top,	 Sloppy/Mouse  Focus  and  Raising,  and  many
       more... Well, not a lot,	but some more.

       This manual page	documents the marco command.
