Gnome 3 Cheat Sheet

The Gnome 3 "cheat sheet" list of shortcuts, and how to use the new interface, is not easy to find, but probably the best starter for using Gnome 3. Maybe more links to the page will help.

The page itself is a very nice, instructional page, with diagrams, making it more than a cheat sheet.

At the end, they list this, which is the "cheat sheet",  I am re-listing for my sake.

  • System (Windows) key: Switch between overview and desktop
  • Alt+F1: Switch between overview and desktop
  • Alt+F2: Pop up command dialog
  • Alt+Tab: Pop up application switcher
  • Alt+Shift+Tab: Cycle in reverse direction in the application switcher
  • Alt+[key above Tab]: Switch between windows of the same application in Alt+Tab
  • Ctrl+Alt+Tab: Pop up accessibility switcher
  • Ctrl+Shift+Alt+R: Start and end screencast recording
  • Ctrl+Alt+Up/Down arrow: Switch between workspaces
  • Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Up/Down arrow: Move the current window to a different workspace
Most keybindings can be viewed under the User Menu -> System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts
