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.

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. – Tobias Oct 1 '18 at 12:23
