Hello,

What desktop environment are you using? Gnome, KDE, Xfce, ...? Try CTRL-ALT-L (lowercase l).

Kind regards,

Eric

There should be a tool for setting keyboard shortcuts. Gnome would use System - Preferences - Keyboard, while KDE will have something in the configuration centre. Usually the shortcut is turned off by default and you just have to choose a key combination and set it. Pick something that makes sense and that you won't press by accident: Ctrl-Alt-l is a pretty good idea.
