Downloads:  2000
Submitted:  Jan 4 2009
Updated:  Sep 3 2009


Simple plasmoid to show list of opened windows. Inspired by KDE3 equivalent.
Developed and tested on KDE 4.3.0 (Mandriva 2010.0 beta).
It's part of kdebase-workspace since KDE 4.4.

If you want to use arrow icon with this applet you can find instructions in README file.

- shows list of all windows grouped by desktop on left mouse click;
- shows list of windows on current desktop on middle mouse click;
- selecting active window minimizes it or activates it if not active;
- possibility to drag window entry on pager to move it to another desktop;
- switch windows using mouse wheel;
- actions menu for each window after right clicking on it's entry;
- "Cascade windows" and "Unclutter windows" actions;
- automatically group windows in sub menus if there is more than five per desktop;
- configurable keyboard shortcut.

If you have found bugs or have suggestions you can contact me via email, message or using comments, before you will vote bad.
And remember that not everybody has enough time for fast replying. ;-)


3.1 (03.09.2009):
- added possibility to switch windows using mouse wheel;
- added possibility to drag window entry to pager to move it to another desktop;
- automatically group windows in sub menus if there is more than five per desktop;
- some cleanups.

3.0 (21.04.2009):
- renamed to Window List;
- all visible strings are now translate able;
- show information when trying to show menu when there is no opened windows;
- removed configuration interface (option to set arrow icon is still available in configuration file);
- simplified code.

 can't install this

 by woozalia on: Nov 5 2009

I click on the "download" link for Ubuntu, and it redirects me to a "wait while your download starts" page, which then goes to a page which says "No matching Personal Package Archive for 'windowslist'." (URL: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=windowslist )

This looks broken to me; can someone fix it?

Is there a way to add this through APT?

Ubuntu Personal Repositories keeps changing, and sometimes links are valid, sometimes not...

 Support for activities?

 by mwp on: Oct 15 2015

Hi, thanks for this great window list.

The list currently gives all windows, sorted by virtual desktop. But all windows from all activities combined are listed.
It would be more logical to group them by activity first, then by virtual desktop.

Any chance to implement this?

Maybe make the grouping optional: optional grouping per virtual desktop, and optional grouping per activity.

I doubt that there will be any new version (at least it is very unlikely in case of KDE4), this applet is part of kdebase for several years and AFAIK now there is also different version for KDE5 (most likely even simpler).

Life is unfair...

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
