Because the workspace switcher is arranged horizontally the keybindings for changing workspace have been altered to ctrl-alt-left/right. The message tray button shows and hides the message tray, as the hot corner is hidden by the panel. Right clicking on the workspace switcher invokes a dialog to set the number of workspaces."
