Hi robgoss ,

Right click on free position of panel and :
Panel >add > workspace switcher
Then right click on Workspace switcher and choose >properties
In the next window you can adjust the number of workspaces.
Switching by click on the workspace fields of the workspace switcher.

You can also set a keyboard shortcut to switch workspaces. (IIRC, it used to be set by default but now it's not).
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?

Sorry if I'm not making my question clear, I have attaching a screen shot of what I'm trying to do. I think it's probably called something else

I was under the impression it was some kind of windows switching

Thanks so much

That looks like Cinnamon Expo view, I haven't had Cinnamon installed for a while so I don't know if it's still built in or an applet you'd have to install nowadays. It's not available on other Mint DEs AFAIK.
