Known stuff:

  • CTRL + ALT + left-arror moves to the previous workspace. (i.e., WS2 -> WS1)
  • CTRL + ALT + right-arrow moves to the next workspace (i.e., WS1 -> WS2).

But swapping workspaces isn't so easily referenced!


I made a mistake! WS3 should be WS2! WS2 should be WS3!

Questions by value:

  1. How to rearrange workspaces via keyboard?
  2. How to rearrange workspaces?
  3. How to clone a workspace [via keyboard]?

Terribly cumbersome workaround:

right-click every proggy/app taskbar-item in both WSs and click Move to Another Workspace

Slightly better workaround:

  1. mod: launcher.
  2. Keyboard Shortcuts.
  3. Change Switch to workspace # to CTRL + mod + num #.
