Angry Redhat 9 Workspace Switcher not switching.

Has anyone been able to drag a program like Mozilla from one Workspace to another in Redhat 9? And if so where is that option in the preferences?

I have looked everywhere. In Redhat 7.3 it use to have an option in Preferences where it would move to the next Workspace when you dragged the program far enough to the side, down or up....I loved it. But under Preferences in Redhat 9 I don't see that option, and no where on Redhat's site does it mention it. If anyone know how I'd love to know also.

You can't just drag it to another workspace: you gotta right click on the top of the window, and choose 'Move to Workspace X'

That works on Gnome.

Thank you very much. That was probably the one thing I hadn't tried.

Now I have to follow the directions on how to permanently change the workspace names cause when I restarted my box it didn't save the names....I know I saw a thread about that on here somewhere....

Thanks again,
