Cinnamon 1.6 boasts persistent workspaces that create fast and can identify individually. The “Window Quick List”, an applet, which allows users to quickly switch to the desired applications on the various work areas is also new. The window changer Scale got better keyboard support, which allows users to quickly switch between two windows. The “Alt-Tab” window switcher is now configurable and supports mini-thumbnails and a window.
A new notification applet stores system messages, allowing users to quickly weggeklickte accidentally or be able to get a few seconds of self evaporating news again on the desktop. The developer revised the appearance of the sound applets and extended it to buttons that can be used to mute the speakers and microphones. Nemo is now the default file manager for Cinnamon.
