How can I remap the Super+w shortcut, which spreads all the windows, to one of the function keys?


1 Answer 1


This works on 14.04:

  1. Install CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM).

    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
  2. Run CCSM from the Dash.

  3. Go to Window management -> Scale -> Bindings tab -> Initiate Window Picker
  4. Click the keyboard shortcut (<Super>w on your PC, but <Super>Tab in this screenshot).

    CCSM - Window management - Scale

  5. Click Grab key combination, press the desired key(s), then click OK.

    Edit Initiate Window Picker

    I chose <Super>Tab to be like Windows 10.

  • I've had no success with Compiz on Ubuntu 20.
