Discovering that wmctrl is a REALLY useful tool to have on X11 and works great on elementary OS/GNOME.

Examples:

See list of all current windows with their geometry:

wmctrl -l -G

Move a window with the class name org.small_tech.comet to position (100,100) and size it to its minimum size:

wmctrl -x -r org.small_tech.comet -e 0,100,100,0,0

Show the desktop (hide all apps):

wmctrl -k on
