I am new to Ubuntu, and the Workspace concept intrigues me. Using Help, I find that there is an Icon for the Workspace Switcher, and it is not where the help document says it should be. Why not?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

By default, the workspace-switcher is not enabled in the Launcher. This setting is toggleable via the Appearance - Behaviour tab in System Settings

Untick the option to remove the workspace-switcher icon.
