I didn't notice the "Activities" sub menu on the window title menu before.
It works. However, windows that are hidden in the current activity still
have their entries in the task list, which feels quite weird.

Anyway, I found the option "System Settings->Window Behavior->Virtual
Desktops ->Different widgets for each desktop", turned it on and organize my
widgets and windows with virtual desktops, instead of activities. This
configuration fit my use case best, so far.

Best wishes
