Vive la difference eh!
For me, since I found that 'favorites' extension this morning I shut off
the overveiw. Just one less thing to click on for me. Turned off the "hot spot" first thing, months ago.
I don't use Cinnamon, or the MGSE menu in Shell, just the simple one (Cairo Menu) on the AWN dock, that with favorites, places, recent docs. Is all I want. I dont think we had all these choices when we ran MS Windows, did we! Gotta love it.
