Ok, now I know where you are looking.... on the panel.
Yep, I see the same brackets when I am focused on the desktop but not when in an app - a little odd.

on my desktop, I only see one bracket amongst the many tabs open... never noticed them before honestly... so I guess they never bothered me?

They appear and disappear. So why do they appear and disappear? While I'm typing this they are gone. But when I do ctrl alt d to go to the desktop, they are there again :-\

For me, they seem to be indicating the tabs with current activity...

Not that big of a deal. Just want to know why they are there and if there is a possibility to remove them ;)

Hi Johan, I always go into window button properties and change it to icons only. You can still see what it is you have open by hovering over the icon and tool tip will tell you what it is? To activate Icons only on your panel, you probably know how to anyway but for those who don't.
There are two ways to get to windows properties, first Right Click Three Little Lines On Panel just off of movie player icon on the right. Might take a while to find?



Code: [Select]
Left Click on properties
Should look like this.


How I have mine setup.


Hope this helps to get rid of those brackets. Though I never do with the theme I use and have never seen them before.  ;)

Left click the images above as they seem to not display properly until you do.
Code: [Select]
The other way to get into window properties is left clicking panel highlight panel in the list and choose panel preferences


Code: [Select]
Click on Items Tab


Items list that's on your panel come up after clicking it,
Code: [Select]
highlight Window Buttons

The fifth icon on the right of the window is edit, so left click it.

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

I don't know about your machine but on mine, the square brackets indicate windows that have been minimized.  To get rid of the brackets, just restore the window.

Thanks. Knew that too ;) But I don't want them to show at all. Is that possible?
