On the older versions I was able to switch from one of 4 screens in the work space. Is this not available in the new 14.04 version?

You can either click the Workspaces button on the launcher (above the trash), or press Super + S.

You can use Ctrl+Alt+Arrow to move between them, and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Arrow to take the current focused window with you.

  • The workspace button is not on the launcher, and when I hit ctrl + alt + arrow it does not do anything. Any suggestions?

Yes, It is also available.

You can do it by pressing Super Key + S or Ctrl + Alt + Arrow keys to go directly to any workspace you want.
