I work much more efficiently when I don't have to take my hands off the keyboard. I know that others do as well.

I found three issues in the synergy tracking system requesting a hotkey for switching screens: issues 866, 915, and 2279. All three issues are closed as a duplicate of a mysterious RFE 702597. Where is this secret enhancement request? What's its status?

Who else would find mouse-free operation helpful?

According to the old config guide you can achieve this with config options like this:

keystroke(alt+left) = switchInDirection(left)
keystroke(shift+control+alt+super) = switchToScreen(moe)

Excellent. So it does. Thank you very much! –  Aryeh Leib Taurog Apr 9 '11 at 20:31
Confirmed works with 1.4.10, with a Mac slave on a Windows host. Excellent! –  Cheezmeister Jan 18 '13 at 18:21
I dont get it.. why nothing happens here?? –  Aquarius Power Jun 23 '14 at 23:07

This functionality can be added on the windows version by launching Synergy from the start menu and selecting "HotKeys" from the options pane.
