How do you get this tooltip running in overview?

Create a folder named "Applications_Overview_Tooltip@Tornado" in "user/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions". (user will be you Very Happy )

Download the extension.js and metadata.json from here https://github.com/fbianconi/gs-ext-applications-overview-to oltip
and then copy these two files into the folder.
Activate it in tweak and restart the shell. Smile

Can you clarify what is happening in this screenshot? I'm too stupid at this time of day to understand. Smile)

PS: You can use "~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions" to match any "$HOMEDIR".
i.e. `ls -al ~` will in fact list your homedir as defined in /etc/passwd.

Normally the tooltips under the icons are shortened.
To see the whole name of the icon, you will need the tooltip with the black background.
The extension works not by installing from gnome extensions website. Smile
