Description Nate Graham 2021-08-27 20:35:36 UTC
I use this option for the existing Present Windows effect because I like to use it to manage only my non-minimized windows. In my mental model/workflow, when I minimize a window, I want it to effectively disappear until I want to see it again by explicitly un-minimizing it. Quitting and restarting it in this case is not an adequate substitute due to app launch times being non-instant and transient state rarely if ever being perfectly saved.

So it would be nice if the Overview effect could gain an option to exclude minimized windows.

I totally agree; this should be an option!
