Pop-Up Window Control Method by Pen

      Disclosed is a method for shrinking pop-up window by tapping a
special software button by a pen.  An user can enlarge the pop-up
window again by tapping the button without moving his/her hand since
the button location is not changed when the pop-up window is
shrunken.  At this time, the temporary contents on the pop-up window
is saved even when it is shrunken.

      The Figure shows an example of the pop-up window and the
button.  When the user tapes the button with the pen, the pop-up
window shrinks like below.  And please note that the button location
is not changed.  The user can resume the pop-up window by tapping the
button again.

      This method allows the user to shrink/enlarge pop-up widow
easily by just tapping a button.  And it is very convenient that the
user do not have to move his/her hand to tap the button again.  Since
the data when the user worked at that pop-up window is saved even if
it shrinks, the shrink button may implicitly show the suspend status.
