Is there a way to create a keyboard shortcut for moving a window away to another workspace and remaining focused on the current workspace (so not the default behavior of "move window one workspace down" etc)?

(Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)

    Also this - howtogeek.com/113330/…. So we're clear - this Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Arrow Key does what you want, but it takes the focus to the new workspace, you want it to remain on the current workspace, correct? – slm Jul 15 '18 at 2:38
  • @slm, exactly, I want the focus to remain with the workspace I was looking at. I want to have this as a way to move away a window to another workspace when I stop using it for the moment (but I might want to get it back quickly later so I don't want to close it.) I want to "slide it" to a workspace I'm not looking at right now. As far as I can tell, your answer just points me to the "move window one workspace down" hotkey (which by default is the key combination you describe). – Kvothe Jul 16 '18 at 23:59

According to the 18.04 Ubuntu documentation titled: Move a window to a different workspace:

  • Super+Shift+Page Up
  • Super+Shift+Page Down
