[Bug 975813] Re: "Tile windows" section contains non-working keyboard shortcut and mentions "Windows key"


It's actually the reverse in my case.
The keyboard shortcut "super key" + left/right does work. It doesn't if I press Ctrl as well. Maybe we should add a comment about how it could without the Ctrl, depending of the version ?

Bug description:
  As Yelp's content isn't up-to-date, please see

  To maximize a window along a side of the screen, grab the titlebar and
  drag it to the left or right side until half of the screen is
  highlighted. Using the keyboard, hold down the <link xref="windows-
  key">windows key</link> and press the <key>Left</key> or
  <key>Right</key> key.

  There are two problems here:

  1. Keyboard shortcut "windows key" + left/right doesn't work. It
  requires user to hold Ctrl as well.

  2. "Windows key" should be called "Super key".
