MX Tweak suggestion- label the Window Buttons Options

#1 Post by Guido » Mon Nov 19, 2018 9:00 pm

I was trying to remember how to prevent all applications from displaying on the panel instead of by virtual desktop. So I checked out the MX Tweaks control first, but nothing there. So, I read XFCE help, found the Windows Buttons control, and fixed it. I was going to write how MX tweaks should have something like this, only to find it has something exactly like this as a button control labeled "Options" with the label "Windows Buttons". It's a bad name for the whole thing (XFCE's name), and it's not obvious that the control is there in MX. But you could make it better because you have a little room on the side to tell people that it controls how and when application tokens(?) show up on the panel.

I suggest putting a label to the right of the button (which is too large anyway):
"Options to control the method for displaying programs on the primary panel by virtual desktop, monitor, program group, window minimization, and more..."

If you really like buttons, you can make that the button text.
