Multiple Workspaces?


Is multiple workspace supported? I searched in settings and also attempted all the keyboard shortcuts. I did a Google search and searched in the forum. I didn’t find an answer.

Thank you for your help.

Officially, no. Unofficially, you can re-enable them but you will find they are not well-integrated with our desktop customizations. This configuration of our desktop is not tested so may, in principle, break at any time.

If you want GNOME’s default behaviour of creating a “spare” empty workspace at the end of the list:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter dynamic-workspaces true

If you want a fixed number of workspaces:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences num-workspaces 4

Now if you press Win+a or click the button in the bottom-right corner of the taskbar, you’ll be able to see the workspace list at the right of the screen. You can reset these settings to their defaults with:

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences num-workspaces
gsettings reset org.gnome.mutter dynamic-workspaces

Thank you for her help. I appreciate the warning and the directions. I will just leave it be for now.

Thank you.
