Title: Using the GUI
Post by: blackturbokitty on March 12, 2012, 12:33:13 AM
Hello. I'm a Windows user and even though I love Ubuntu and think it's amazing I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on using it effectively. I'm used to using the taskbar to switch programs, though with ubuntu so far you have to minimize the window you're working on or move your mouse to the launcher and click back to your desired program... Though this can be annoying and cumbersome with a touchpad and my keyboard.

What are some other ways to switch programs? Any tips would be much appreciated.
