I currently have 4 different spaces open on my Mac. If I hit Control + Option + three times (my shortcut for moving right a Space), I'll end up in the last Space. If I hit it again, nothing happens.

Is there a way to make it so that going right from the rightmost space wraps back to the leftmost space?

I want it to behave more like the application switcher when I hit Command + Tab.

  • I pin a couple apps to my first space and command tab to them to save the three presses to get from space 4 to 1 quickly. I kind of like that I can’t go past the end, but I understand you might really prefer a loop instead of an end. – bmike Jun 19 '19 at 9:54

As an alternative to what you are trying to do, I use an app called Which space that puts the space number in the menu bar. This enables you to always know which space you are in. Knowing this you can use control # to change to space number #.

  • You do not necessarily need a third-party app to do e.g. ^1, ^2, etc. to Switch to Desktop (n), it's built-in to macOS in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control. You just have to check them so the keyboard shortcuts are active. – user3439894 Jun 20 '19 at 1:04
  • Yes of course. i knew that and then thought Which Space enabled that. the only thing Which Space does is put the space number in the menu bar. i will delete my answer. Thanks for pointing that out. – jmh Jun 20 '19 at 1:42
