Alt-Tab in Zorin

linux-category-inverted

By default Gnome groups your application windows when you press alt-tab, so for example, if you have two file explorer windows open, you only see one in the alt-tab list.

If you want to swap between those two file explorer windows, you can alt-tab and then arrow down or you can use alt-` (or whatever key is above your tab key on your keyboard).

That’s kind of intuitive and worse, it takes a lot of extra keystrokes.

To “ungroup” windows in the alt-tab switcher, simply start the “Tweaks” utility, go to the extensions group and enable the “Alternatetab” extension.

Now all your windows show up when you alt-tab.
