    Hi.

    Do you mean the quicklists for the icons?

    Then this might be what you are looking for?

    Did you try clicking the icon two times? It should bring up all the windows of that application.

    Question Re: window switcher not working

    I have had the same problem since upgrading to 12.04, so I might as well describe it here.

    Setup: I have multiple windows open of a program (say, Firefox) in multiple workspaces. Let's say I have 2 windows open in each of 3 workspaces for a total of 6 windows. Initially, some other window (say, Terminal) has focus.

    When I click on the Firefox icon in the launcher, the last-used Firefox window in the current workspace gains focus, which is the correct behavior.

    When I click on the Firefox icon in the launcher a second time, an Expo-style spread of windows appears for the 2 windows in the current workspace. If I had only 1 window open, nothing would happen. This is incorrect behavior. The correct behavior is to display an Expo-style spread of all 6 open windows of the selected program.

    From reading the latest Unity discussion of task switching, I can't quite tell if this behavior is considered a feature or a bug, but I would very much like to restore the correct behavior I used constantly in the last version. Honestly, I'm not sure how one is expected to pull up a window that happens to be on another workspace now.

    EDIT: Ack, wouldn't you know: a few more minutes of searching reveals this extensive thread on the topic. I guess this is an intentional bug after all...

    Super + W will show all windows on the current workspace in the same style.
