Dash And Overview Click Fix

by grossetti

Fix the dash's and overview search's behavior when you click on an already running icon. The default behaviour is to switch to it, this extension changes that to lanch a new instance instead. It also always open a new window when launching applications from the Overview Search when typing the application name and pressing ENTER (rather than using the mouse). PLEASE NOTE: a couple months ago the Gnome team contacted me about including this extension in Gnome-Shell for the classic mode, as of GS 3.7. I will release the 3.8 version (since I wrote it already) and then cease to maintain this extension since Gnome has taken over. It has been renamed "Launch new instance" and is located here: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/600/launch-new-instance/. Thank you all for your support!
