View Full Version : [SOLVED] Window placement shortcuts in MATE

December 29th, 2017, 10:26 PM
In Ubuntu with Unity, I often use keyboard shortcuts (such as CTRL + ALT + NUMPAD 6) to place windows to the right or left side of the screen.

I am now using Ubuntu with MATE, and using it on a MacBook laptop through VirtualBox. So I am eager to know if (a) is there a way to in MATE to do window management, i.e. shortcuts for placing windows in different sides of the desktop, and (b) if so, can the shortcuts be configured (as I will most likely need to change them, since a Mac's keyboard does not easily translate to Linux/Windows keyboards).

Found the answer myself: System > Preferences > Hardware > Keyboard Shortcuts then under Window Management fine Tile window to east (or west) side of screen
