I heard something about having multiple work spaces on Ubuntu 14.04 and was curious about it.

  • Just enable workspace option in Appearance->Behaviour May 2, 2014 at 3:02
  • @Seth: This should not be a duplicate question. How to USE workspaces is not the same question as how to TURN ON workspaces.

Press Windows Key -> Type appearance

Click Behaviour tab

On Launcher click this icon

Go to Keyboard from System settings & Navigation & set your shortcuts for moving betweeen workspaces & handling softwares.
