Mouse-click to switch between programs?[SOLVED]

Postby croakyfrog on Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:12 pm

I'm new to Linux and I jumped to Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 32 bit version straight away. Is there any way to enable Mouse-click on taskbar/panel to switch between programs instead of Alt+tab? Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yes, there is a way. Just follow the procedure:

1. Right-click on the panel
2. Left-click on settings
3. Left-click on applets
4. Check the box in front of "Cinnamon Window list"
5. Close

By following the link below, you can also find some features in Linux Mint 14 that might interest you.

I got the solution myself. I had Panel Edit mode switched on .. I guess that didnt allow me to Mouse-click on panel items.. I just restored all settings to default from the panel. Thanks all...:P
