Hi and thanks for trying the Shell and reporting. This issue has been
discussed many times already on this list though, and designers and
developers don't have the time to answer again an again the same

To be short: it's at the core or the Shell's design to work with the
overview rather than an application list. Though the Shell has a support
for optional extensions, so if somebody steps in and provides an
application list extension, this feature will be available for people
who feel the need for it. But not by default.

Sorry to be quick, but if you want more details, see the list archives
for the last few months:
and be sure to read the design documents too:
