Window List Missing Some Programs

Post by thw » Sat Dec 12, 2015 10:11 pm

Running Mint 17.3: I can see four of five active programs in the Window List applet. When using Alt+Tab I can see all five.

Is there some method for hiding specific programs from the Window List and is there a way to add missing programs back to the Window List applet?

The missing program was in the Window List yesterday. I am not familiar if there is some key macro that can be performed to remove it from the Window List, even if the program is restarted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! The only similar forums I can find are telling folks to add the Window List applet to the panel, but that would not be the issue here.

Perhaps you have some active windows open in other workspaces.
Ctrl+Alt + right/left arrow buttons to change workspaces.
You can right click on the windows list and choose to make visible on all workspaces
or move to another workspace.

What precisely do you miss?

Do see programs in other workspaces you can use one of this 2 methods:
Press instead of alt-tab ctrl-alt-tab
Click the Window Quick List icon in the panel.

It seems to me there's a bug in the new thumbnail feature of the window list applet.
