Keyboard shortcuts, windows pseudo tiling

Previous: Introduction to Mabox Linux Desktop

Openbox is a window manager that you can use the way you like – with a mouse, keyboard or both. In Mabox, useful keyboard shortcuts have been configured, which allow you to work effectively without taking your hand off the keyboard.

Windows – pseudo tiling, resize, move etc.

super+Up = Halfscreen Top
super+Down = Halfscreen Bottom
super+Left = Halfscreen Left
super+Right = Halfscreen Right
