This is the gnome activities overview
It's kinds slow reading through or looking for applications that look very similar. Anyone know of a way to show icons alongside the names? It's much faster to look for icons
There is a GitHub repository with a Gnome-shell extenstions that seems to do what you are looking for (although I haven't tried it). Install it using:
git clone https://github.com/sustmi/gnome-shell-extensions-sustmi.git mv gnome-shell-extensions-sustmi/windowoverlay-icons ~/.firstname.lastname@example.org
The source, including a screenshot, of this post can be found here.
Add application icons to window overview
sudo apt install gnome-tweaks
