Very Happy Hello,
In Linux you have multiple desktops.
The pager is the little boxes just right of the Menu/Start button,
which represents them graphically,allowing you to monitor their contents, and switch between them..

JWM use the word 'pager' for what everyone else calls a 'desktop switcher' for switching between virtual desktops. In the wider world, though, a pager is the program 'more', 'less' or 'most' which allows you to scroll through long documents.
