I am using Gnome on ubuntu. I have a question if there is a short-cut to move a window down. If I right click the title bar there is a command to move the window a workspace up or down, I would like to have that behaviour in a short-cut. Is this possible?

Note that the command ctrl-alt-shift-arrow is not an answer to this question, because it moves the window down AND moves the view down along with the window; it therefore does not behave in the same way as the "move workspace up or down" option that I find when right-clicking the title bar.


In Gnome on Ubuntu 15.04

  • Access Settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts -> Navigation
  • Options are available to set Keys for moving window to desired workspace
  • Default : Shift+Alt+Super+Home
