I like to have launchers for web applications (spotify web player, google calendar, overleaf etc.). I also like to group multiple open windows of the same application in the window list.

I create desktop launchers for different web apps in chrome via "add to desktop". When I open a web app such as google calendar or overleaf with these launchers, it is grouped with other chrome apps, and the browser window in the window list in my panel.

I use Linux Mint xfce 18.3 and the xfce panel 4.12. Is there any way to make the window list treat chrome apps as separate applications?

I.e., I would like to have the following grouping:

  • google chrome browser
    • chrome window 1
    • chrome window 2
  • google calendar chrome app
  • overleaf chrome app
  • ...

Instead I get

  • google chrome browser
    • chrome window 1
    • chrome window 2
    • google calendar chrome app
    • overleaf chrome app
  • ...

Any suggestions in how to fix that?

Thanks

Note: I edited the question to explain the desired behavior.

EDIT: 2 years later, same problem. Anyone knows how to fix this?

  • Actually the new web app manager for linux mint solves most of my issues. You can install it in Mint as well.

Check for options in Panel Preferences. Right click Panel -> Preferences -> Window Grouping.

If available, select Never group windows option.

Select window list preferences

Select never group windows

    Hi Dave, thanks for your answer. I know this possibility exists but it is not what I want. I edited my question to be more clear.
