How do I invoke Workspaces on Ubuntu 18.04? It used to be:

ctrl+alt+ (up or down)

But my laptop crashed. After rebooting, those key combinations don't do anything.

Is there a way to configure Ubuntu to make them work again?

    Can you check what do you have here "System Settings..." > "Keyboard" then switch to "Keyboard Shortcuts" tab? – bhordupur Feb 22 at 22:22
  • Thank you so much. It was reset to the default (?) which was "Super+Page Down" and "Super+Page Up". I configured back to what I'm used too. Thanks again. – Linh Phan Feb 22 at 22:45

Workspaces is set in Tweaks.

If you have Tweaks installed, go to Workspaces and set the number of Workspaces required there.

  • Thank you. Is there a way to save out the preferences, so if it crash again, I can just restore my preferences? – Linh Phan Feb 22 at 22:46
