In 12.04 when I press Alt-Tab and had opened more than one... lets said firefox windows, I just can see one firefox icon that represent all the firefox windows I have open.

How can I get one icon per windows instead of one icon per windows of the same type when I press Alt-Tab ?

This can be done in CompizConfig Settings Manager using "Application Switcher".

Install CCSM:

  • Hit Alt+Ctrl+T to open terminal and run following command:

    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

    Or search for compizconfig-settings-manage in Software Center and install from there.

How to have a Windows like Task Switcher?

  • Once installed, Hit Super key (Windows key) to open Unity dash and search for "ccsm" and open it.

  • In CCSM navigate to Windows Management > Application Switcher.

  • Enable "Application Switcher", You'll see a warning window click on "Resolve Conflicts" and disable all "Unity Plugin" bindings. Change the key binding for "Next Window" to Alt+Tab.

  • Click on "General" tab. and enable "Only Show Icons".

  • Close CCSM. That's it!

Now in "Application Switcher" you'll see a septate icon for each window of an application.
