[SOLVED] Panel Pop Ups - How to Disable?

Post by jackerbes » Thu May 24, 2018 8:24 am

When I move my cursor over some items in the Panel I see a small rectangular label with the name of the app or menu, on other apps that I have minimized I get a much larger square pop up.

I don't want to see the larger pops, just the labels or even nothing at all if it has to be that way.

I can't seem to find a setting for turning off that larger pop up...

That preview is a feature of the 'window list' applet. Here's how you turn it off:
- Rightclick on one of the buttons on your panel. The large ones, for programs that are running.
- Click on 'Preferences' in the pop-up menu.
- Choose 'Configure...'
- On the settings window for the 'window list' applet, disable 'show window thumbnails on hover'.

Worked perfect! Thanks!

I never would have guessed how the name of that setting was what I was looking at...

Oh yes, finding out what it's called is often the hardest part.
