The Window Previews displays a small thumbnail of any displayed (not minimized) window when you hover over it's button in your desktop environment's window list
Using Window Previews
- Window Previews does not require a keybinding to be active. It is on by default.
- To use Window Previews, hover your mouse cursor over a button on the taskbar.
- Thumbnail Window
Thumbnail Window Size refers to how wide the thumbnail window should be. The aspect ratio is kept the same, so the width of the thumbnail windows will remain the same, however the height may vary
Show Delay is how long the mouse cursor must remain over the button until a thumbnail is shown in milliseconds
Thumbnail Border Size defines how large the border around the thumbnail should be
Thumbnail Border Glow Color defines what color the glow around the thumbnail should be, if Paint Window Like Border is unchecked
Fade In / Out Duration defines how long the fade in / out animation for the thumbnail window should be
Paint Window Like Background paints a 'Window' like glass background behind the thumbnail. Otherwise, a glow is painted around the thumbnail
Taskbar only shows windows of current viewport, use this if your taskbar only shows buttons for windows of the viewport you are on. Otherwise, leave it unchecked
Thumbnails always-on-top paints thumbnails above tooltips and any other window
Window Titles. You must have the Text plugin enabled for this feature to work
Enable Titles enables drawing a window title on the thumbnail
Bold Font makes the font bold
Font Size defines how large the font should be
Font Color defines the color of the font.
If you want to hide the thumbnails that your taskbar shows and use the Window Previews plugin instead, add the following rules to Opacity Matches under General Options
name=gnome-panel & type=tooltip, Opacity 0
name=kicker & type=tooltip, Opacity 0
name=xfce-panel & type=tooltip, Opacity 0
