Mate desktop Panel howto group windows

Post by carlos maestro » Thu Mar 15, 2018 10:57 am

Hi everybody.

I am using Mate desktop and look for a way to group windows in the panel.
Like one icon(button) for several firefox windows.

Thanks

Hello carlos maestro Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

You would choose the window list preferences

Thanks WharfRat

Works like a charm, little screen more room :D
Couldn't find the preferences option at first so for people having the same problem, copied from panels manual:

Preferences
To configure the Window List, right-click on the handle to the left of the window buttons, then choose Preferences.
