    Question Keyboard Shorcuts

    Hope this is the correct forum for KB question. If not, please let me know and I will re post elsewhere.

    Under Unity, if you press and hold the Super key, a help panel of keyboard shortcuts appears, and under the Switching category there is one for "Switches windows of current applications" (Alt+|).

    I use a Spanish keyboard layout, the | key is in different place other than the US English layout. Does this have any bearing on how this function works?

    Thanks in advance for any help you might provide -

    In my shortcut overlay the keys are alt+` (the key above tab)
    to switch windows of the currently focused application.
    This enables you to alt+tab to an application with multiple windows
    and after a short delay all windows are shown in the switcher.
    Continue holding alt and press the ` key (above tab) to cycle through the multiple windows.

    If the application with multiple windows is already in focus you can go straight to the alt+` key.
