    In Compiz Config Settings Manager, look for the Expo plugin, and set the option for Expo Button to whatever button configuration you want. You can choose edge+button, ctrl/alt/super+button, or just button options, depending on your preferences. Just make sure you don't nullify any other shortcuts.

    I just hold down <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Left Click> and drag to another workspace. I'm not sure if I did anything to enable this or if it's stock, but I'm surprised that no one mentioned it. Am I missing something?

    Unhappy Re: unity workspace switching Q

    I am testing out Ubuntu 11.10 in a Virtual Machine to see if I should upgrade to it. One the most awesome things in Ubuntu and Linux in general is the workspace feature. I am able to much better organize my work.

    However, I have been trying for about an hour to move a window to another workspace but I wasn't able.

    Here, I am talking just basic Ubuntu, no other programs installed.

    That's what I thought, but it does not work for me, or maybe I just don't have the "intuition".

    What I do is click on the workspace swithcer, which kinda zooms out but shows me only the current workspace in the upper left quarter of the screen. I cannot click and move any windows not can I "go to" other workspaces like on older versions of Ubuntu.

    I am trying to go with the flow and the new way of thinking of Ubuntu developers, so I would like to know what the the "intended" procedure to go to another workspace (using a mouse and the default programs).

    This is what I get when I click on the workspace switcher:

    I read that Unity comes with 4 workspaces (as the icon shows as well), and that it is quite complicated to add more. So I just want to use those 4 anyway.
