Is there a way to tweak Alt+Tab in Gnome 3 so it will iterate windows only in the current workspace?

I'm using Debian wheezy.

    Which desktop environment (GNOME, KDE, XFCE, etc.)? – muru Dec 7 '14 at 15:30
  • This is like asking "How do I activate cheat code in a game?" without specifying the game. – MightyPork Dec 7 '14 at 15:40
  • You are right :P , sorry for the omission. – Fokos Dec 7 '14 at 17:41

There's an extension for GNOME Shell which enables this behaviour: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/310/alt-tab-workspace/

  • This is no longer necessary given that there's now a settings that's configurable. See the other answer. – colan Oct 25 '17 at 15:46

This command also does the trick:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.app-switcher current-workspace-only true

    +1 in fact, changing this setting is exactly what the extension does. – GabrielF Jan 23 '16 at 19:58
  • @GabrielF correct. I don't remember why I left that out actually... – Oebele Jan 25 '16 at 14:38
