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.

Pressing CTRL F1 , CTRL F2, et cetera is no longer enabled by default to switch among the various workspaces? I'm looking at upgrading my other installation (Mint 19 or 19.1) if/when I figure out how to copy(?) the printer configuration that I finally managed to get working. "Little changes" that aren't documented are often a problem for me. I have what, decades ago, in children would probably have been called a learning disability - although in my case, it stems from having a truck hit my car head-on when we were both traveling at approximately 50 miles per hour back in 1989. It might have something to do with cognitive function, I don't know. Learning new things is sometimes difficult, but "unlearning them" and replacing them with a different new thing seems to always be a tough hurdle.
