Something which is hugely, hugely bugging me is the fact that I cannot seem to find out how to make Mission Control, when inside of it, let me just move through the available desktops with the arrow keys inside of the menu. This is so intuitive and I can’t imagine there isn’t a way to enable it, but my google-fu and duckduckgo-jitsu have been fruitless.
I have Mission Control set to open with the use of the back button on my mouse, then, what I want to do, is use the arrow keys to cycle between the desktops (not the entire desktops, just the small thumbnail top) and press enter on the one I want that is highlighted.
Linux does this, and I swear it was swiped from macOS (or, well OS X), it seems incredible that I have to add the extra key of pressing CTRL while arrowing AND then return my hand to the mouse to click on the mouse back button to exit Mission Control. Way too much hand movement.
Alternatively, setting it to the scroll wheel instead of CTRL + arrow keys would also be okay. Again, typical of Linux. And even macOS has it with finger swipe on the magic mouse or trackpad. Now, I can’t use the magic mouse anymore for extended periods of time. I have been work from home for a year and a half, and I needed a more ergonomic design which is why I went with a Razer Basilisk. I also have a standing desk set up now.
I work in IT and across Linux and macOS and I kinda just need them to 95% of the time do the same thing with the same keys or buttons. It’s bad enough I have to remember the different fn keyboard set up and option/kana set up between my JIS and US keyboard layouts.
Help me, I’m so tired…
