If you have multiple windows of one program and you click the icon twice in the launcher, it will pan out and show all the windows of the program.

Here's my issue. Sometimes I have many windows of a program open and resized so that they sit next to each other, but I'll have to click on another window for some reason and when I click the program's icon – to return to it – in the launcher, it only gives me whatever window I used last, and if I click it twice, I get this huge, laggy, panning animation, which I don't need.

Is there something else I can do? Like click it and show me all instances (or windows) of the program at once immediately, like in Windows?
