I would love to be able to swap between workspace 1 and 2 with a single key (like how alt+tab works with windows). I know CTRL+ALT+Arrow-keys works but a single key to switch between the two would be better.

I use Ubuntu MATE. Thanks in advance. Martin

  • You would consider alt+tab to be one key?

I figured it out. For anybody else who is looking to achieve the same, I set a shortcut key in "Keyboard Preferences" under "Switch to previously selected workspace".
