If you mean switching between virtual desktop/workspace, it depends on the desktop environment you use. In Gnome, it is "Ctrl + Alt + left/right arrow key". I don't know if there are other faster ways, though.

You need to tell people what system you are using...and it would be really helpful if you phrase your subject in a meaningful manner. Say "switching between desktops" which would help you get quicker answers and helps other people with same problem zero in on your post.
