I'm wondering if it's possible to group two or more windows in Xfce and make them act as a single window.

I mean, I use multiple git cola Windows for multiple repo. I'd like to glue these windows side by side and move/resize/reduce as a single window.

Any idea?

for terminals, you can use terminator, which basically splits the terminal window into multiple ones with ctrl-shift-e and ctrl-shift-o.

For windows in general, i'm not really sure how that would work.

Already using terminator :D – Ivan Morgillo Sep 30 '11 at 9:51

No, this is not possible with xfwm4. If you want such a feature use a tabbed window manager like twm (I think kwin can do this, too). See for informations how to switch your WM.
