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>

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>.

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>.
