Which subwindows do you use?

I'm close to implementing additional subwindows and I want to know which subwindows are actually used by the players. For me, the useful subwindows are:
  • messages
  • monster list
  • item list
  • minimap (but not the kind of minimap that currently exists in Angband)
What about you? Which subwindows do you find useful, and why?

I use 5 subwindows (counter-clockwise from bottom left around to the top right side of the main window):
- messages,
- monster/object recall,
- object list,
- monster list,
- inventory/equipment

Monster recall, monster list, item list, inventory/equipment. I also use a gigantic main window taking up most of my 1920x1080 display.

None. I have no idea how people divide their attention between several different windows.

  1. equipment
  2. inventory
  3. player (basic)
  4. player (extra)
  5. messages
  6. monster list
  7. object list
... and I would use monster recall and maybe minimap if there were enough subwindows.

Incidentally, I don't know what "Display status" is supposed to do, but it currently seems to do nothing.

For me:

In PosChengband - I use none
In Sil - I use inventory + equipment + monster description + maybe a few others (I don't remember right now since it had been ages since the last time I played Sil)
