Improved WinThumbnails Dock Extension for Gnome Shell


WinThumbnails is a dock for GNOME Shell that displays live thumbnails of windows of the running applications.

The dock can be aligned to the left or to the right side of the screen. It also can be configured to autohide and to show thumbnails for all running windows or for minimized ones.

The dock has been originally created by Aleksandr Starun and Dmitriy Kostiuk. I have made some improvements to the extension, with following changes:
  • Added option in extension preferences to enable/disable application title.
  • Added option in extension preferences to enable/disable close button.
  • Increased app icon and close button size.
  • Visual appearance tweaks.


To install, extract the archive into ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ and logout or restart Gnome Shell.
