But I’ll recommend you to use the Feature which is unaware for the Users who are using Elementary OS Juno for the First time. It makes the Work Easier.
Whenever you hover the cursor to any of the 4 corners of the Screen, you can trigger a preset action to happen.
For example, when you move your cursor to the Bottom corner of the screen you get the multi-tasking view to switch between apps which acts same like a “gesture by using Touchpad“.
In order to utilize the functionality, you can follow the steps below:
- Head to the System Settings.
- Click on the “Desktop” option.
- Next, select the “Hot Corner” section.
- Depending on what corner you prefer, choose an appropriate action to get Trigger when you do it !!
