I am running kubuntu 16.04, in gnome I was able to move a window between adjacent workspaces with Ctrl + Shift + Alt + (to move the window one desktop to the right)

Where are the settings for this shortcut on KDE?

This is my global keyboard settings, the options seem to be missing: enter image description here


Yo can define you own shortcuts. Go to settings ->shorcuts -> global keyboard shortcuts and there select the kde component "system settings" seach for window to next screen and choose your shortcut.

Depending of the system / version it could be in diferent subsection of "Global keyboard shortcuts" I have it in "system settings" and in other computer in "KWin" section. So if you don't find it take a look in other places.

System settings

search next screen

  • system settings only has the following: Halt Without Confirmation, Lock Screen, Log Out, Log Out Without Confirmation, and Reboot Without Confirmation – Morgoth Feb 8 '17 at 12:36
  • @morgoth, is there I've edited the answer with two images. – Mquinteiro Feb 8 '17 at 12:50
  • I don't have that, I've updated my post to reflect that. – Morgoth Feb 9 '17 at 10:05
  • @morgoth look in kwin section instead "system settings" – Mquinteiro Feb 9 '17 at 13:43
  • It is under the "KDE Control Module" – Morgoth Feb 10 '17 at 10:27

Thank you Mquinteiro for pointing us to the shortcut. I am on KDE Neon (Plasma 5.9.2) and I found the shortcut in

Sustem Settings -> Shortcuts -> Global Shortcuts -> KWin -> Window to Next Desktop

and it does what is says it does.

But this is still very limited. You cannot move the window directly to the virtual desktop you want; You can only iterate between the desktops until your window is moved to the desktop you intended.

I mean, here I can define a shortcut for Window to Next desktop but not for moving Window to desktop at left and moving window to desktop bottom and so on.
