I use workspaces with a great deal of windows! I have a problem:

  1. Be using a firefox tab, or terminal window.
  2. Change to password manager (on other workspace) by clicking launcher icon
  3. Copy password
  4. I want to go back to last opened window <- !! MY PROBLEM !! how can I do this?

I get 'stuck' at step 4 and go crazy trying to find where I last was. I hate this ! It breaks up my flow. I feel like using my birthday as password for everything ^^

I searched a lot and found advice Tapping ALT+TAB or Shift+ALT+TAB but this cannot go across workspaces.

I would love a key that is 'go to last active window' wherever it may be, changing workspace if needed

  • Hi David thank you that solved it. That is a clever way of looking at it
