# Ubuntu – Second monitor and workspaces

multiple-monitorsunityworkspaces

When my second monitor is connected to my system, I get four workspaces for each. This is annoying as I now have eight.

I would like to continue using workspaces on my large monitor but have the second sitting only with a single workspace.

Is this possible?
If so, how?

• First you can quickly know how many workspaces you have with the following commands, open a terminal and type:

dconf read /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/hsize
