I am a frequent user of the overview mode provided by Meta + w. There I can select a window by using left mouse click on the window.

Is it also possible to select a window using only the keyboard?

It doesn't seems like there is such functionality... instead I can suggest you to use Super + Arrow Down, you'll be able to select the window with arrow keys, and "Select" with Enter button.

And, it sounds like a feature request to me :) Submit it to Launchpad as a blueprint?

  • Cool feature! I wasn't aware of Super + Arrow Down. Thanks for suggesting!
