Title: MULTI-SPATIAL OVERVIEW MODE
Abstract:
On a computing device, an overview mode is provided to present overview windows of all applications currently running on the computing device. When one or more applications are running in a windowed mode, a first overview window is generated for each of the one or more applications running in the windowed mode; when one or more applications are running in a full-screen mode, a second overview window is generated for each of the one or more applications running in the full-screen mode. The one or more first overview windows in the first space can be arranged in one or more rows in a first overview space, and the one or more second overview windows in the second space in a stack in a second overview space. The arranged overview windows may then be displayed in the overview mode of the computing device.
