Bug Description

I like to use the Super+W shortcut for managing windows, but find that occasionally I would like to tidy things up and close a few of them. Clicking on a window then closing it using the windows close button is very tedious especially for when you want to close more than one window.

My recommendation would be that an X appear on each window in the Super+W view so that the windows can be closed from there.

Also, when you double click on the app with lots of windows it would and you see all windows exposed it would be great to show close buttons on them. Now it is really annoying to close unwanted windows. You have to expose many times and select each window individually.

It's not an Opinion because it's not under debate - yet. If someone can tell me a good reason why it shouldn't be possible to close the windows shown in the global expose then it can be changed to Opinion.

"The status 'opinion' means there is a difference of opinion around a particular bug and people are free to continue the discussion, but the project or package maintainers need to move to other work and are considering the issue closed. The idea is that bugs can be marked closed, so developers aren't wasting time on them, but discussion can still be on-going."
