This question already has an answer here:
I have 2 monitors connected to my Mac. Each monitor has multiple spaces setup, for example - monitor 1 has Desktop 1, 2 & 3 and monitor 2 has Desktop 4 & 5.
ctrl+← and ctrl+→ only move between spaces on the currently focused monitor.
However, I can't find how to switch monitor focus using the keyboard.
If focus is on monitor 1, I need to point and click my mouse on monitor 2 and only then can I switch spaces on monitor 2.
Even if I switch to an application open on monitor 2 using ctrl+tab, the monitor focus and space switching still occurs on monitor 1.
