At the moment, I only have 4 workspaces but the workspace switcher is taking up half of my panel. Is there a way to resize it or cause it to take up less space (other than increasing the number of rows)? I just want each workspace to take up less horizontal space in the switcher.

I am running Xfce on 14.04.

To change the size of the Workspace Switcher in Xfce4, we need to change it in the Panel settings.

Click on:

Whisker Menu -> Settings -> Panel -> Items -> Workspace Switcher -> (Gear to edit selected item)

enter image description here

In the Workspace Switcher configuration, uncheck Show miniature view

enter image description here

Then your Workspace Switcher should look like this:

Hope this helps!

  • I see. I like the thumbnail views, it's just that they seem much larger than in Ubuntu 12.04. I was hoping for a way to simply resize it and scale down the thumbnails. – BobDoolittle Mar 11 '16 at 1:02
