Taskbar: Thumb preview on click.


#1

Hi, Im new with Netrunner, so I have a question, when I open several instances of the same application and I click on the icon (only-icon task manager) a pop-up with the list of instances is displayed. That’s not very useful, sometimes I can not distinguish very well which window corresponds each entry in menu, also this menu have no closing button.

Is there any way to see a preview thumb on click like other plasma distros? Ty.

P.S.: English is not my native languaje, sorry If I made mistakes.

Go into systemsettings -> workspace behavior -> workspace and check ‘Display informational tooltips on mouse hover’


#3

Ok, ty for you answer, but I allready did that and work “on hover”, I’m asking for a way to get the thumbs “on click”


#4

That should make them appear if you have the effect for thumbs activated under desktop effects.


#5

I’m sorry if I’m being very clumsy, but in “Desktop Effect” (I think that’s Option -> WorkSpace Appearance -> Desktop Effect, my desktop is in spanish, hehe) have not any effect for thumbs.

See Systemsettings -> Display -> Keep Window Thumbnails and change it to always or only when visible.


#7

So after enabling this option, it works like you want it, but on hover? Can you make a screenshot how it looks like on hover?
And you want the same thumbs then “on click”?

Sorry, I could not answer before, I have made a small video, which I think illustrates my question better.

Thats exactly what I am pointing to at. If you want to have a thumbnail for minimized windows you need to activate it here:

I have activated “Only when Visible” when I did the video.

Yeah so this expected then. Visible means not minimized.
