When we press Alt+Tab, then we cycle through ALL the applications instances in CURRENT workspace.

When we press Ctrl+Alt+Tab, then we cycle through ALL the applications instances in ALL the workspaces.

When we press Alt+` (backtick), then we cycle though ALL the instances of currently active application in current workspace.


==> Now, I want to know some way or some extension, so that with some keyboard stroke, can i cycle through ALL the instances of currently active application in all workspaces.

Hence, for example, that is,in Unity DE, if currently active application is "gedit"(say), Then is there an extension or a way, so that by pressing Ctrl+Alt+`(backtick) (say), we can cycle through all the instances of gedit only in any workspace ?

Starting in I believe 16.04 it's an option, not sure of the current default as I've changed here to make a single hand binding (Ctrl+Alt+z)

You should find in ccsm, (install compizconfig-settings-manager) > Ubuntu Unity Plugin as in screenshot
