Fedora GNOME 3 show desktop keyboard shortcut.

June 26th, 2011 13 comments

The Ctrl-Alt-D keyboard shortcut to show the desktop no longer works by default in Fedora 15’s GNOME shell. This can be very frustrating if you have many windows open and need to get to the desktop quickly.

Let’s fix it. Click your username in the top right of the screen and select System Settings.

Gnome3 -> System Settings

Under  Hardware click Keyboard.

Gnome3 -> System Settings

Switch to the Shortcuts tab, and click Navigation in the left column. Scroll down and select Hide all normal windows which has a default value of Disabled.

Gnome 3 -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Navigation

Set the shortcut to whatever you want.

Getting back the missed minimize/maximize buttons in GNOME 3.

Struggling to get used to it, I was very much missing the minimize/maximize buttons on my applications in GNOME 3.

I have finally found a solution to get these buttons back and if you are looking for a solution, this should work for you too:

  • $ sudo yum -y install gnome-tweak-tool
  • $ gnome-tweak-tool
  • Click on Shell
  • Change Arrangement of buttons on the title bar from Close only to All
  • Log out or Restart
  • Log in
  • Enjoy!
