Re: Hiding minimized windows from Overview?

There is no minimize per say in Gnome Shell (there not even a button for this).
Instead of changing the code (mutter or gnome shell) or even creating an extension, I suggest you simply change your workflow.
Like you I have Evolution on 100% of the time.
I simply put it in another workspace. Usually what I do is starting Evolution and Empathy on the first workspace, and I work (LibreOffice mainly) on workspace 2, and I use the subsequent workspaces for other applications (let say, Chromium, a terminal, Rhythmbox ...)

And that works great. I think I am even more efficient this way. When I go in overview mode I see only the applications on the workspace I'm on, and I can check on the other appli by switching workspace.
That will reduce a lot the interruptions and will increase your efficiency.

Good luck :)

I wanted to say that I really love GNOME 3, nice work all. :)

One thing I'm missing is a way to get windows out of the way when I don't want to work with them. For instance, I keep Evolution running 100% of the time but only check it every now and then. Same with Banshee, it's always running but I spend very little time with its window. 

I figured minimizing would do the trick, and I could get the window back using the dash icon (that already works). Problem is that minimized windows appear in the overview, and I only want the windows I'm working with to appear in the overview. 

Any pointers on how I could hack mutter or the shell to make minimized windows not appear in the overview mode? 

Also, if anyone has a link on the shell's planned design for minimizing I'd love to read about it.

Thank you all,
