Can's find one on the list of cinnamon apps. anyone care to write one? I really hate all the space the current window space takes up. I have seen all the apps available and none of them gives a true window list like we used to have in gnome 2. That was one of my favorite apps.

I also noticed cinnamon only gives me two desktops and no way to add more? I need like 6 or so on the regular.

Anyone have good news? :?:

Enable Hot Corner in Cinnamon Settings.
Enable Workspace switcher applet in Cinnamon Settings > Applets

Click on the Hot Corner.
A plus sign will appear on the far right of the desktop, click it, and keep on clicking it to get as many desktops as you want.
To delete any desktops, again click the Hot Corner, hover over a desktop and then click the close button on top right corner of the desktop
you wish to delete.

Well there you go, as easy as that. How come I missed that in the instructions? Oh wait, where are the instructions?

Legitimate question ....
I only learned about it by stumbling onto another post on the forum ... "as you do" :wink:
