Hot Corners
You can also configure "hot corners" (shortcuts activated by placing your cursor in the corner of the display) to activate multitasking functions like the window overview, workspace overview, and more.
You can customize hot corners through <strong><a href="/docs/learning-the-basics#system-settings">System Settings</a></strong> → <strong>Desktop</strong> → <strong>Hot Corners</strong>.
By default, all app windows open on one workspace. However, you can use multiple workspaces to organize your workflow:
To see an overview of your workspaces, press <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>S</kbd>
To quickly move left or right through your workspaces, press <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>←</kbd> or <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>→</kbd>
To cycle through your workspaces, press <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>Tab</kbd>
You can jump straight to a specific workspace by pressing <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>1</kbd> through <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>9</kbd>. You can always jump to a new workspace with <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>0</kbd>.
You can also drag app windows between workspaces by dragging their icons in the workspace overview, or move them left and right between workspaces using <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>Alt</kbd> + <kbd>←</kbd> or <kbd>→</kbd> respectively. To see an overview of app windows across all workspaces, press <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> + <kbd>A</kbd>.
You can customize these shortcuts through <strong><a href="/docs/learning-the-basics#system-settings">System Settings</a></strong> → <strong>Keyboard</strong> → <strong>Shortcuts</strong> → <strong>Workspaces</strong>.
Some windows may also fullscreen onto a new workspace. You can move between workspaces as usual, and closing or un-fullscreening the app will return you to the previous workspace.
<em>Note: <kbd>&#8984;</kbd> refers to the &quot;super&quot; key. It is also known as the &quot;Windows&quot; key on most PCs or the &quot;Command&quot; key on Macs.</em>
Multiple Displays
The panel, dock, and workspaces appear only on the primary display. Any other attached displays act as standalone workspaces. To manage and rearrange displays, head to <strong><a href="/docs/learning-the-basics#system-settings">System Settings</a></strong> → <strong>Displays</strong>. Your primary display is marked with a filled-in star (
) and each display's settings can be changed from its cog (
) menu.
Installing Apps
elementary OS comes with <strong>AppCenter</strong>, an app store for open source pay-what-you want apps. Installing a new app from AppCenter is easy:
Open the <strong>AppCenter</strong> app.
Search in the top-right, or browse by category.
Select <strong>Free</strong> or the suggested price next to the app you want to install. To choose a different price, select the <strong>▾</strong> button and select or enter your own price.
You may be asked for your password prior to installing an app.
<em>Note: Some software may not be available from AppCenter. As of elementary OS 5.1 Hera, you can also sideload Flatpak apps from third-party .flatpakref files.</em>
AppCenter includes updates for apps and the operating system itself under the <strong>Installed</strong> tab. Remember to install updates frequently to get the latest features, fixes, and security improvements. For more information related to security patches, read the <a href="">Ubuntu security notices</a>.
System Settings
elementary OS comes with the &quot;System Settings&quot; app that helps you manage settings and preferences for your device. System Settings gives you the ability to adjust things like keyboard shortcuts, display resolution, your wallpaper, and more.
You can quickly find settings you are looking for by typing keywords in the search bar at the top of the window. The contents of the System Settings window will filter down to match your search.
