If your company has a clean-desk policy, the company is nuts and you’re nuts to stay there.

If you don’t know what to do with many of the papers piled on your desk, stick a dozen colleagues initials on them and pass them along. When in doubt, route.

People want to know why I do this, why I write such gross stuff. I like to tell them that I have the heart of a small boy — and I keep it in a jar on my desk.
Stephen King

I am a new user to Ubuntu.  I come from a long Windows background.  At work I have two monitors.  At home, I only have one monitor.  Sometimes my Ubuntu desktop is crowded at home with some many things running.

Workspace Switcher to the rescue.  I forget to use it sometimes but it is a great resource.  The Workspace Switcher is typically at the bottom, right of your screen.  I have configured it to have 4 Workspaces.  In any Workspace, I can run any application.  I can easily switch between Workspaces by clicking in the panel.  If I want to move an app from one Workspace to another, just drag app name from the bottom panel and drop on the Workspace panel.

To configure the Workspace switcher, right mouse click on one of the panels and the context menu pops up.  Click on the Preferences menu choice.

This preference screen controls the number of Workspaces and the names of the Workspace.  To change a name, just double click.  To save changes to the Workspace name, press enter.  To discard changes, press escape.
