I am using Lubuntu 18.04 with LXDE and I would like to have a feedback on which windows are already open. Currently the quicklaunch looks like this :

Sure, I can use Alt+Tab to swhitch between windows but is there a way to highlight them on the quicklaunch?

  • Are you using LXQt on 18.04? The left most icon is a LXDE logo usually found on the menu system as found in Lubuntu 18.04 LTS. LXQt is also EOL on 18.04 being the last Lubuntu Next project (it wasn't a LTS release, the LTS release used LXDE) – guiverc Jun 20 at 10:21
  • I am using Lubuntu 18.04.1 for i686 and yes you are right sorry, I thought it was LXQT I am going to update my question – johhnry Jun 20 at 17:54

You can add "Task Bar (Window List)" to the panel.

Then your open windows are shown in the middle of the panel.

This is LXDE on top of stock Ubuntu so it looks a little different than yours but I think the answer still applies.
