I currently have 2 plank's running, but they show all of the workspaces current windows.

I need them to show only the current windows tasks.


If you check your settings for plank, there is an option, under the Behaviors tab that specifies: Restrict to Workspace, This may help you in the right direction

  • Thank you, but I am after window not the workspace. I have 2 monitors and a plank on each monitor. – Jamie Hutber Jan 16 at 16:35
  • hmm strange, I also make use of two monitors and I only have plank active on my primary monitor. What I did was click on Desktop in my system settings, Click the dock tab, and switch primary display to on. Log out and log back in – Selwyn Orren Jan 18 at 6:25

If you Ctrl+Right-Click on the Plank you'd like to set this on, you'll find a "Restrict to Workspace" toggle that should handle this function for you.

  • Ah no, sadly this shows "workspace" now the windows currently open programs. – Jamie Hutber Jan 10 at 14:07
