quick unity question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
is it right that when you click on a unity icon of a program thats already open that the icon does nothing? it doesn't launch a new program which is fine because you can right click new instance but with my test install it doesn't do the most important feature which is why ive always relied on Docky / CairoDock / AWN which is to maximize and minimize said application?

Please tell me that it can do that somehow redface.gif

Don't know, I haven't used Ubuntu too extensively... normally just a quick install to see how things are. But every install it's always toggled the window just fine tongue.gif

Clicking on icon of already running program in Unity will not minimize it and there isn't any setting for that functionality. In Unity you supposed to just switch from one prgram to another.

BTW you can launch new instances of programs from launcher by clicking on icon with the scroll wheel of mouse.
