In keyboard > Shortcuts; How can I set the Left Alt button to no longer grab windows on mouse click?

I'd like to set it to Super instead.


You can change this behaviour by setting the mouse-button-modifier property in the dconf database, open a terminal and type:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences mouse-button-modifier "<Super>"

To restore the initial settings, use this command instead:

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences mouse-button-modifier
