Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm new to Ubuntu and have no idea what to call this feature.

It's like this: let's say I have VLC running in workspace 1, and I have Chrome running in workspace 2. If I click on the application icon on the dash, it should automatically switch me over to the workspace where that app is open.

I had this feature on, but when I was playing around with CCSM, I kind of disabled it, and now whenever I click on an app icon, all it does is put something like an arrow mark on the right side of the icon.

Please help! I've been trying to do it by myself but still can't find the solution.

Having great fun while tinkering though.
