The Workspace switcher is hard-coded to Ctrl-F1 .. Ctrl-F4 in Mint. I would like to change that to Super-F1 ..., but I do not even know where that is configured.

Is this possible? How? With the keyboard editor (gui), there is no option to set the Workspace switcher shortcuts.

This is configured in Setting / Window Manager / Keyboard.

Unfortunately I cannot do anything with default shortcuts in Mint 17.1 Xfce - see my answer here to show how I modified it manually.

The link is to another SE site, but it's better for answers to be self-contained. This doesn't really contain a solution without what's at the other end of the link. You could post this as a comment, but to keep it an answer, consider including the essential information here and keep the link for attribution. – fixer1234 Sep 13 '15 at 6:40

I believe you go to the settings manager, key board, and go to application shortcuts. PS. You also helped me to know the key binding, I don't understand the command based shortcut manager too well, thanks!
