[opensuse] switching to gnome, a question
So, I am tired of KDE hanging up so much, so I am going to try switching to gnome. I have been using it for 2 days now, and so far much better. It is more stable, and the applications just seem to run smoother. For example, here using Thunderbird, when in KDE, it seems to hang and slow down. When using it in Gnome, it doesn't seem to do that.

There, however, some features that I miss with KDE that I haven't figured out yet in Gnome. Here is one. In KDE, I could switch between open windows using alt-tab. In KDE, alt-tab switches between open applications, but not between windows within an application, like this email I am typing and the main thunderbird screen. I tried hitting the windows key and tab also, but it does the same thing as alt-tab.

I like having a key that switches between applications, as they have it set up, but it would be nice to also have a key shortcut that only switches between windows. Like may to set things so that alt-tab switches between windows, whether or not they are the same application, and windows_key-tab switches between applications. And then also another shortcut to switch between workspaces.

Is there a way to do that?
