Grouped windows list - enable list item dragging

Post by EC120 »

I love the new Cinnamon Modern desktop layout.
One thing I would suggest, unless I overlooked it, would be the ability to reorder the window list by dragging.
I don't mean app button dragging. There is already setting for that in Grouped window list > Panel tab.
I mean list of windows per app, for example 3 Firefox windows shown in the picture below.
With a large list of windows, it would be really helpful to have them in certain order.
Thanks for considering.

It's in the config options for the applet, right click on the applet > preferences > configure > panel > check/uncheck Enable app button dragging
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

That's for App button dragging, as I already mentioned in my first post.
I'm suggesting the ability to reorder list of windows of a single specific app.
For example 19 separate windows of Firefox shown above (only 3 visible due to image crop).
So I could move Linux Mint page to the top where Wikipedia is.

Sorry I misunderstood.

Not as it stands - the only option is to sort by last focused or not in the Thumbnails section (this setting applies whether you actually display thumbnails or not)

Not a fan of tabbed browsing I take it :wink:
