Ubuntu: Alt + Tab only toggles between two recent windows on 16.04



Question:

I have a Mate desktop environment on 16.04. The Alt+Tab keys only toggles between the two most recently accessed windows within the same workspace. Doesnt toggle at all to all other windows that are open within the same workspace. I am indeed pressing and holding Alt while pressing and releasing Tab multiple times. Any workarounds?


Solution:1

The default function per Martin Wimpress:

Alt+Tab: Cycle Applications in CURRENT workspace.
Control+Alt+Tab: Cycle Applications in ALL workspaces.

To check them run:

gsettings get org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows   gsettings get org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows-all   gsettings get org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows-all-backward  

To Change them run a variation of the following code with your preferred settings:

gsettings set org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows 'disabled'  gsettings set org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows-all '<Alt>Tab'  gsettings set org.mate.Marco.global-keybindings switch-windows-all-backward '<Shift><Alt>Tab'
