Add window titles or/and program names to Alt+Tab.


Description lockywolf 2019-05-29 08:15:50 CEST
Created attachment 8595 
screenshot.  only two window titles are displayed

My alt-tab menu currently looks the way the photo illustrates (I don't know how to make a screen shot of this screen.)

Could window titles to non-selected pictogramms be added?

xfce4-screenshooter supports delay before capturing.

My guess is that there is no room to show window titles, I don't know if ellipsized titles would be helpful.
Another option is to enable the option "Cycle through windows in a list" in Window Manager Tweaks, you get full titles but lose window previews.

Well, but it looks fine on the selected pictogram.

Also, I wouldn't mind multiline captions.
