Alt+F10 is supposed to be toggle maximise window but it doesn't function.

I've checked it is bound in ccsm > General > Key bindings and it is, but it's just not working. Ditto minimise.

Also the same is confirmed by Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts

Is there something else controlling/masking/blocking this?

(Nb. There are lots of posts on here about Unity; I am not using Unity, but Gnome Shell)

    In Unity 12.04 Super+Up is for maximizing windows. Ctrl+Super+Down for minimizing. Possibly this works for Gnome Shell, too? – Jakob May 18 '12 at 9:08
  • yep, you're right. how annoying. If you know a GUI/cli way to configure this behaviour pls do post an answer. – artfulrobot May 18 '12 at 11:01
  • Duplicate? askubuntu.com/q/131359/46531 - take a look at my answer there: before enabling Alt+F10 you possibly have to disable F10 behaviour (at least in Unity). I hope it works for Gnome Shell, also. – Jakob May 18 '12 at 14:48

"In Unity 12.04 Super+Up is for maximizing windows." - Thanks to Jakob for this answer (in comments), this does work and so unless you really think it must be Alt+F10, stick with this.

  • @jokerdino You can, but you have to wait 24hrs – artfulrobot Sep 3 '12 at 21:11
