Unhappy Shortcuts for virtual desk on KDE.

I want to make a keyboard shortcut to access the differente virtual desks on KDE. Like CTRL + n, there n is the number of the desk. I played around a bit with the KDE configuration panel and saw a shortcut maker, but dont know how to do this.

Shortcut sequence Tab
Switch to Desktop (mines Ctrl + f1)
Window to Desktop (sends current window to specified desktop mines META + 1,2,3,4 respectably)

*Note your KDE may be slightly different just look for the Keyboard shortcut and or Accesibilty

The default KDE scheme is that ALT + TAB switches between windows, and CTRL + TAB switches between desktops. That should be on by default. As should CTRL + F1 for desktop 1, CTRL + F2 for desktop 2 and so on.

Oh, yeah, it worked. I looked in other menu, not in Accessibility. Thanks!
