alt tab dialog appears on all monitors


Description bronsonmathews 2016-11-29 22:39:17 CET
I need a way to disable the alt-tab dialog displaying on other monitors.

I have 2 other screens for a live projection/display system, and need to disable the dialog from displaying on anything other than the primary monitor.

Some way to set which monitor it shows on, or maybe by which monitor has the cursor on it?

That's a feature I fancy and miss on other desktops, so I wouldn't remove it (and I am not in favor of making everything and anything optional).

So, given that's for a specific use case, your best course of action would be to patch the code, that would be quite easy.
