I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with 3d unity.

When I have several windows of the same application (say Nautilus) opened and I click on its launcher (in unity app launcher bar) window previews appear offering me to select which window I want to activate. But sometimes I can't recognize for sure which one I needed by those previews. So I'm clicking one of them. If wrong window is activated I'm clicking the launcher again, and trying next window. But then I found that those previews changed their positions (rotated). So I can't predict those window order to iterate them all without repetition.

I would like to disable that "windows preview rotation" feature.

Is it possible?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I do not know if it is possible, but you can use the faster ALT+~ (or ALT+the key over TAB on your keyboard) to change windows within one application.
