One of the biggest things I miss from Windows 7 when I'm on Linux is the ability to push WinKey and a number to switch to the program in that place on the task bar. (e.g. You push WinKey+1, and it switches to the first program in the taskbar.) Is there a way to replicate that on Ubuntu 12.10 with Cinnamon? I tried to add custom shortcuts to do it, but I don't know any commands to switch to windows by their place in the taskbar. Is this possible?

In Unity Desktop Environment this option is there by default. Just hold the Windows key (also called super) and the numbers for the shortcut will appear on each program's icon.

I don't think Cinnamon has this option.

In Unity that's how it works. If I hold Super (WinKey) it shows me the number to hit for each app in the launcher bar.

Yeah, I was wondering if it was possible in Cinnamon though. –  Ullallulloo Dec 2 '12 at 0:29
    
Sorry, I missed the reference to Cinnamon. –  GaryBishop Dec 8 '12 at 13:00
