mate & workspaces

rather new to linux mint. installed ver 15 + MATE. i like MATE as it works over vnc well vs Cinnamon.

i couldn't find an option in control center/desktop to config like 4 workspaces as i'm used to have in fedora.

does MATE have this?

btw, its a great distro from what i've worked with so far.
