Did you get irritated having to click the minimize ‘-‘ button to minimize every window in Unity desktop for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? Have you wondered, Can I use the Unity launcher icon to minimize applications/windows?

Well, an unsupported capability was added in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release to achieve this. Unsupported means Canonical do not guarantee this moving capability forward towards Unity 8. To achieve this in a safe way just run the command given below in your terminal.
gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ launcher-minimize-window true
