[SOLVED] panel windows

I'm trying out Xfce desktop and I was wondering if there was any way to switch the order of my panel windows.

I open a few programs and they are placed in alphabetical order in the panel.

In Cinnamon and KDE, I can just left click/hold the panel window and drag it to another position in the panel. Trying the same in Xfce, an icon of the window moves, but just bounces back to its original position. but the window itself never moves.

Right click the panel > Panel > Panel Preferences. Go to the Items tab. Locate the Window Buttons, click on it to highlight, then click the i button on the right. There you will be able to choose between Timestamp, Group Title, Window Title, Both, or None (drag & drop). :)

Hi kevin987.

If I understand correctly, this should do what you want.

Right click in the panel and choose Panel > Panel Preferences > Items tab > Window Buttons > Edit icon (second up from the bottom for me on 18.3)

In the new window, click on the button beside Sorting order and select None, allow drag and drop

Hope that helps.

EDIT: WOW, I'm slow!
