Feature request: Switching window focus using keyboard, e.g. with Super+1, Su...


Description lockywolf 2019-06-01 13:26:01 CEST
I would like to be able to switch focus (or raise) windows with keyboard shortcuts.
For example, Super+2 could de switching the focus to the window number 2 as displayed on the Window Buttons plugin on some xfce4-panel.

If window grouping is enabled, it could expand the group to choose a window using e.g. numbers 1,2,3, or CUA shortcuts (Alt+underlined_letter in the window title) or just using arrows.

Or it could switch to just any window in the group, and the user would use Super-TAB to switch between the windows in the group.

I think this would be a handy feature.
