Minimize Applications to Thumbnail with ThumbWin


If you minimize to many applications to taskbar, then it becomes difficult and time consuming to find the right one when you need it. ThumbWin adds a new functionality to how applications are minimized. ThumbWin creates a thumbnail of any window which you minimize on desktop.

This way you are presented with much more visual information about your minimized program and can quickly select which one do you want to open. Clicking on a thumbnail will maximize the window while clicking a close button on a thumbnail will exit the program. Even though the program is simple, it comes with a lot of customizations. You can change the layout and dimensions of your thumbnails and can also exclude applications whose Thumbnails you don’t want to appear.

However, it doesn’t work if you minimize more than one window at a time. It is also very light on resources. A nice free application.
