Have been using Actual Window Manager for years and it is my NUMBER ONE app for any new build!

I have 8 physical monitors and 12 virtual desktops and have everything customized just so.

The ONLY ONE issue that has really bothered me since is, I have a number of apps that run on all virtual desktops which I would love to hide/make invisible in the Virtual Desktop Switcher. I have tried using the Remove Taskbar Entry setting in Specific Settings | Startup to no avail.

Is there anyway possible this can be achieved, to not show an applications windows icon in the Switcher?

Many thanks,
Tony

For now there is no way to do this in Actual Window Manager. We'll consider your request and will post in this topic when/if this feature is implemented.

Have you set these apps to be on all virtual desktops on purpose, or they are displayed this way by themselves and this is why you want to hide their icons? If the latter, then could you specify these apps (names, versions)?

Best regards.

Hi Bogdan,

MANY THANKS for your reply.

Yes, I’ve set them my self to appear on all the virtual desktops. There are a number of apps I use on all desktops including Chrome browser (Google calendar).
It’s such a shame as most of my Virtual Switcher windows (representing the virtual desktops) have 3 to 4 icons that needn’t be there at all.

It’s strange, I have an app, that by default doesn’t show in the taskbar, and doesn’t show in the virtual switcher too, but it’s the only. I’ve tried hiding the other apps taskbar button from the registry, but they still show up. Very strange.

I really hope you have an option to hide application icons in the switcher soon.

Many thanks!
