Is it possible to preview workspaces? When I press down Ctrl+Alt+, it shows a preview of all workspaces until I release the keys. Is it possible see just the preview before having to switch?

Try holding the super/windows key and press S this should do what you want.

Also holding the super/windows key will display a list of keyboard shortcuts.
