I've always loved multiple workspaces, and I used up to 8 in my beloved 14.04. Now in 18.04 I understand we are in GNOME and not Unity, and there isn't a way to tweak much the workspace thing.

I can live with the Super button, and the vertical, dynamic workspace system, but I can't find a way to move windows from one workspace to the next using the keyboard.

I combed this site and found several answers, but they seem outdated and don't solve the problem for the 18.04.

I also installed compizconfig-settings-manager (as per this), but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a GNOME extension I'm missing?

Launch the Settings application and go to Devices > Keyboard.

You would be able to find the preset shortcuts to move a window between workspaces here and also change these to ones you prefer. Even if no shortcuts are assigned, you can set new ones.
