I'm using 11.10 - please can someone let me know how can I move programs from one workspace to another.

I'm used to the Gnome-2 style - is there a way to achieve something similar in 11.10?

  • You can still move programs from workspace to workspace (I do it constantly), maybe you are experiencing some kind of problem. – Cmorales Feb 2 '12 at 13:36
  • You are wrong! Just press Ctrl+Alt and then use an arrow key to switch to another workplace. – grahammechanical Feb 2 '12 at 13:37

  • you can move windows from Ws to Ws while in the workspace switcher (expo), just pick them up with your cursor & drag to another Ws. – doug Feb 2 '12 at 13:53

You can do it.

You can use Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Arrow key to move programs from one workspace to another.

I also made a fancy-smancy video showing you how its possible to drag windows between workspaces.
