Using workspaces like a pro in Ubuntu
With the keyboard shortcuts, i now
ctrl+alt+up/down to move between workspaces which have full screen apps. And
shift+ctrl+alt+up/down to move an app between workspaces.
F11 to make an app full screen
- F11 - make app full screen
- shift + ctrl + alt + UP/DOWN - move app to a Workspace above or below
- ctrl + alt + UP/DOWN - move to Workspace up or below
Also set the below Gnome Tweaks
sudo apt install gnome-tweaks
- Tweaks > Workspaces > Dynamic Workspaces will create/remove Workspaces on the fly
- Tweaks > Workspaces > Display Handling > Workspaces span displays will move all displays, very helpful when you have a multi-monitor setup
The top thing i missed about macOS after switching to a Thinkpad with Ubuntu was the swipe gestures. I could three-finger swipe left/right to switch between full screen apps.
On Ubuntu, i tried to do the same thing by setting up gestures, but it wasn’t as smooth as i wanted.
Ever since i have figured out the shortcuts and started using them, i have felt more productive
