In 12.04 this is a default behaviour.

When i upgraded to 13.04 that does not occur.

When I launch one instance of any example application and switch to other desktop (fro example from up-left to down-right workspace) via Super+S keyboard and then want to see my runned app unity don't switch my workspace to workspace that contain my app.

Why this is by default ?

How can I change this behavior ?

Thank you very much!

My problem and preference is quite the opposite to yours. In 14.04, this is what I see and dislike. Say I have a nautilus window open in workspace 1. When I switch to workspace 2 and click on the nautilus panel icon, unity switches to the nautilus window in workspace 1. It seems this is the behavior you want, right? – Swarnendu Biswas Apr 30 '14 at 3:15
Yes, I am also upgraded to 14.04 and see that this has been fixed in 14.04 ) – Vladimir Skubriev Apr 30 '14 at 9:13
