 ===Is it possible to change the default shortcut keys?=== ===Is it possible to change the default shortcut keys?===
 Yes, of course... Keyboard shortcuts are defined on two locations. The shortcuts to handle the window manager are defined in the Settings Manager > Window Manager Settings > Keyboard. The ''​Default''​ theme can not be changed, but when you add a theme you can change that one. More global keyboard shortcuts, like volume adjustements,​ can be found in Settings Manager > Keyboard Preferences > Shortcuts. Again you need to add a new theme before you can start customizing it. Yes, of course... Keyboard shortcuts are defined on two locations.

 +===How can I see a list of all the shortcut keys?===
 +Use the following command, which will produce a nicely formatted text list to standard output:
 +  xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -l -v | cut -d'/'​ -f4 | awk '​{printf "​%30s",​ $2; print "​\t"​ $1}' | sort | uniq
 +If you want to put this list into a file, add ''>​ filename''​ at the end of command.

 === When will it support samba/​network browsing? === === When will it support samba/​network browsing? ===
-It already does! Just mount your shares and go to them with Thunar! Just kidding. +Thunar ​has had the ability ​to browse ​remote network shares ​(such as Samba and FTP) since Xfce 4.8/Thunar ​1.2.
- +
-You are obviously asking about Thunar being able to discover ​remote ​machines on a network ​and mount/​unmount ​shares ​from them. What you are asking for is nice, but there is no common framework for it yet that Thunar can build on. +
- +
-Thunar is designed to be a file manager, not a network file system manager. Once such a beast exists, Thunar ​and all other applications will be able to use it, and you can browse your samba or NFS shares in firefox or emacs, whatever. +
- +
-Short answer: not any time soon unless you write it yourself. +

-For Linux users, and especially Xubuntu users, the following thread can help: Xubuntu How to: Thunar ​Native Windows Network BrowsingYou will need fusesmb. For me it worked like a charm with Feisty. You should read the post from EatMorePie, as it avoids unnecessary steps.+

 And you're done, xfwm4 should be now in your session again. If this doesn'​t work, stick with method 2 or 3 below. And you're done, xfwm4 should be now in your session again. If this doesn'​t work, stick with method 2 or 3 below.

 Because xfwm4 goes fishy most times at start up it isn't bad if you have to log out. You hadn't done anything important until than. So log out, remove ~/​.cache/​sessions/​* (probably with <​code>​rm -rf ~/​.cache/​sessions/​*</​code>​ and login back again. Don't do this while you're logged in to xfce! Don't do this if you love the xfce session feature (because you delete all sessions, duh)! Because xfwm4 goes fishy most times at start up it isn't bad if you have to log out.

 If you already use xfce4.10 you have the possibility to use the GUI to delete the sessions cache (as you can see, the devs are annoyed, too). Open xfce4-sessions-settings → Session and click »Clear saved sessions«, than log out and in again. This should be all. If you already use xfce4.10 you have the possibility to use the GUI to delete the sessions cache (as you can see, the devs are annoyed, too).
