Quick Tip: Changing Applet Alignment In Cinnamon Desktop’s Panel

I recently installed the Window List Group applet to free up some window list space.  The applet groups you normal icon+text entries to single boxed icons that have the potential to expand beneath them, much like Windows 7.  When I added this applet, it was centred  at the top of my screen, which I did not want at all.  To remedy this, you must dive into the dconf editor for a quick change.

Open dconf-editor

If you haven’t got it installed its

 sudo apt-get install dconf-tools 

Then, navigate to org >> cinnamon.  Now click on the item “enable-applets”

You will want to look for your “centered” panel in the list of “enabled-applets.”  Once you change this to “left” and restart cinnamon, you should be good to go.

Example:

 'panel1:center:11:window-list@cinnamon.org', 

 

 'panel1:left:11:window-list@cinnamon.org',
