Overview

Place Chrome windows on virtual desktops using a tiling grid

This extension provides virtual desktop capabilities for ChromeOS, and some more. Current Features ---------------- * Create virtual desktops. Move windows between them via keyboard shortcuts. * Position windows on a tiling grid layout via keyboard shortcuts. Note: to use the keyboard shortcuts (which is highly advisable), go to this extension's settings and use the "Keyboard shortcuts" button to set a shortcut to launch this extension. Alternatively, use the default shortcut of [Shift]-[Alt]-d. The following keyboard commands are available (where [Modifier] is any modifier from Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Command, as per your preference, and [Shortcut] is your configured keyboard shortcut, which is [Shift]-[Alt]-d by default): * [Shortcut] q: Move the current window to the top left (other position/size keys are displayed in the popup). * [Shortcut] [Modifier]-q: Extract the current tab from the current window, and move it to the top left (other position/size keys are displayed in the popup). * [Shortcut] [Left]: Switch to the previous virtual desktop. * [Shortcut] [Modifier]-[Left]: Send the current window to the previous virtual desktop. * [Shortcut] [Modifier]-[Right]: Send the current window to the next virtual desktop. * [Shortcut] [Right]: Switch to the next virtual desktop.

The provided instructions suggest you'd need a modifier to switch even after activating the extens... Show more

It needs better instructions, for sure! Alt+Shft+d opens the extension. To make a new desktop, click on an open window, press Alt+Shft+d to open, the Ctl+right arrow to place the new window in its own desktop. Then Alt+Shft+d, right or left arrow to switch between desktops. Its useful, once the habit's built. The interface could be more intuitive. But the functionality is good, once you get onto it! Google should build this into Chromebooks, imho. It needs better instructions, for sure. That ... Show more
