I would like to know if there is a shortcut in deepin os for docking a window to a side or corner of the screen. Just like it does when the window is dragged to one edge of the screen.

It doesn't seem to be listed in the shortcut section of the control panel.

Or if there is none, is it somewhere explained how to create on?


Following your last answer, and looking at the source code ; I found this using DBUS.

You can create a custom shortcut using the following line as command qdbus com.deepin.wm /com/deepin/wm com.deepin.wm.TileActiveWindow 1

1 is for left, and 2 for right.

    @ls. I have read the full source code of the Deepin dbus manager – Swizz Jun 25 '18 at 10:05

I haven't found a keyboard shortcut yet.
However, if you have a touchpad you swipe sideways with three fingers. This way the focused window docks to a side of the screen.

If somebody finds a hotkey i would still be happy to know about it!

  • Sweeping sideways upwards with three fingers the focused window maximizes, doing it again restores it – Bit-Man Jul 7 '18 at 1:53
