Windows 7 like taskbar open aplications window?

Postby Mr. Boat » Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:53 am

Hello folks.

Using Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon edition I found that, a lot of times, I get my taskbar all full of openwindows, and it seems very messy, so I was thinking if there is any way you could get your taskbar open applications see like Windows 7 ones, with only it's icon, and in group.

Is there any possibility to get that?

Not in Cinnamon (as far as I know) but if you were prepared to switch to Mint KDE 14 you could run a widget called 'smooth tasks' that does just what you want.

Take a look at this applet for Cinnamon.
