However :mrgreen: I'm not sure what this means...
By what I can see you have to revert back to right-clicking on the title of the open window...
Did you mean doing this in 12 Cinnamon? And if yes, how? :oops:

It's not necessary to have right-click functionality, but now I can't move windows to another desktop anyhow! In previous Cinnamon it was possible to move them just like in default Gnome session (MGSE) by clicking on left corner icon and using drag&drop. This is not possible now, as now only overview of windows from current desktop is displayed.
You simply have to right click on the titlebar of the window. That feature is there and always as been. Mine right now (I'm in firefox) says "Linux Mint Forums [Circle thing] Post a reply - Mozilla Firefox" Another way to change it is to press ctrl + alt + shift and then (while holding those down) an arrow key for the direction you want to move it (for example, the right arrow key).

on the bright side :D the latest built from git (as of yesterday) brings another tab in cinnamon settings (desktop) where some of the gnome-tweak-tools options are merged

It was wonderful. Yet they need to add a section for gtk/shell theme installation. Soon we won't need Gnome Tweak Tool.

Yup, this is in LM 12 Cinnamon and what I meant was that the only way I can see to move windows to another workspace(s) is to right-click on the window title bar (I missed adding "bar" in my last reply. Sorry about that) and using the workspace switching options in the resulting menu as shown in the image below.
Yes yes you understood me correctly. Now I see it. I use google chrome most of the time, but with compact borders (so meaning without window title bar) - that's where the misunderstanding came from!

As you see from my previous sentence, not as simple as it seems. :mrgreen: I'm used to right-clicking in the down panel (where this feature had been in G2).
Anyway, I was moving around desktops with keyboard shortcuts but I didn't know about this one for moving a window! :shock: Great!

Huge thanks to both of you - @kmb42vt & @cwwgateway :!:

Looks just dandy! I'll patiently wait for the next milestone of Cinnamon to show up on Github though. Perhaps I could install LM 12 on yet another partition and try my hand at building Cinnamon from source? I'd hate to mess up my original install. Such decisions I have to make. :mrgreen:

There are some really nice improvements coming in Cinnamon from what I have seen at github. Anyone know when the next release might be? Zero, how did you update Cinnamon to show some of those changes? Thanks :wink:

The layout of Cinnamon Settings is aesthetically and functionally behind Gnome Tweak Tool but I guess it wouldn't be proper Mint if it was sleek :)

Icons on top where you have to scroll to see all options, lose. Text at the left where you immediately can see everything, win. Cluttered vs simple.

I am using mint 12 with cinnamon 1.2.
Since I am already using cinnamon can I still compile?
My guess is no.

This is great stuff, loving Cinnamon so far.

There is notifications in the windows list? Like pidgin conversation blinking or xchat ...

And would be REAL good to have support for two monitors, like 2 bars and windows list for each window :P

Asking too much? :)

Not without uninstalling cinnamon and cinnamon-session. I've tried it in a VM, and I've found that last I checked, you can't reinstall cinnamon-session, so you have to run cinnamon by logging into gnome and running cinnamon --replace. An idea - you can add cinnamon --replace to your startup applications by adding that command to gnome-session-properties.

If crzen's solution doesn't work there is another option - though it may be a bit drastic
User Control Panel>Board Preferences>Edit Posting Defaults then toggle Notify me upon replies by default to "No" - this will stop all notifications though
