Press super+s. You should see your 4 workspaces. Move your mouse, go over another workspace other than that which you were in. Press super+s again. You should go to the workspace that had the mouse over it not back to the one where you started.

I can't do that anymore. It goes back to the first workspace. How can I correct this?

  • I have the same "issue". As far as I'm concerned we click nowadays. I'm not certain, but I think your problem is very difficult to solve.

  • yes I replace it by clicking now :( ...I'll just keep waiting. Jul 7, 2014 at 5:48
  • Curiously, if you already have the hand on the mouse, there's not much point in pressing Super+S. If you have both hands on the keyboard, this behavior makes sense (but then you can Super+S -> Move with arrows -> Enter or Space, I think).

  • yes yes there are many ways I can replace this move but the thing is; I really like this move, it's the easiest and fastest for me to use. ...I think I mostly have my left hand at the keyboard and the other on the mouse. maybe that's why I like this move. Jul 12, 2014 at 20:37
  • @MinaMichael, so even Super+s scroll Super+s does not replace what you need.
