I always have four different application windows open in the same position. I want to assign shortcuts to each one that will allow me to focus that window regardless of the previously focused window. I am thinking of using Super + [window #] to toggle the windows. The desired setup is below.

|                           |    |                           |

|                           |    |                           |
|          Window 1         |    |          Window 2         |
|                           |    |                           |
| Focus by pressing Super+1 |    | Focus by pressing Super+2 |
|                           |    |                           |
|                           |    |                           |
|                           |    |                           |

|                           |    |                           |

Does anyone know of a way to do this?

I'm using Ubuntu 16. The windows are really spread across 3 different screens but I don't think that should matter.

  • Are they four different applications? If yes, you can pin (lock) them to the Unity launcher in the desired positions. – wjandrea Aug 25 '17 at 1:42
  • No two of them are terminator windows, one is a chrome browser, and the fourth is a chrome devtools window. But maybe I could still use pins on the launcher? I'll look into it – lsimmons Aug 30 '17 at 20:31
  • You might be able to make a custom .desktop file for each of the terminator windows, but I'm not sure how exactly. – wjandrea Aug 30 '17 at 20:49
