Advanced "show desktop" to show windows + new windows opened

Postby dragon-dragon_dragon » Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:41 pm

Consider this scenario

Open windows:

Code: Select all

x-chat (This one's on top)
nemo (~/)
chrome
firefox


===========================


You would like to open a textfile you have in a folder on your desktop. You press (super + d).

Open windows:

Code: Select all

none


Minimized windows:

Code: Select all

x-chat
nemo (~/)
chrome
firefox


===========================


You then open the folder on your desktop and then open the text file within it:

Open Windows:

Code: Select all

gedit (this window is on top)
nemo (~/Desktop/notes/linux_mint_secrets.txt)


Minimized windows:

Code: Select all

x-chat
nemo (~/)
chrome
firefox


===========================


You then would like to restore your windows since you last hit super + d. It would be nice if hitting super + d would result it

Open Windows:

Code: Select all

gedit (this window is on top)
nemo (~/Desktop/notes/linux_mint_secrets.txt)
x-chat (this window is next underneath nemo)
nemo (~/)
chrome
firefox
