Are there any Keyboard Shortcuts for maximizing, minimizing and resizing the current window?

I am on Ubuntu 13.04, Gnome-latest version.

Try that:

Alt + F9 Minimize current window.

Alt + F10 Maximize the current window.

If you prefer to create custom shortcuts see this article.


Go to: Applications > System Tools > System Settings > Keyboards > Shortcuts. Choose the Navigation option, then just add. Or:

Alt+F9/F10 doesn't work for me, but thanks for the link. Add the information about seeing the set shortcuts and I will accept the answer. :-) For example I have set CTRL+Super+UP/DOWN – Ionică Bizău Jun 14 '13 at 14:06
