I am struggling to identify an issue on macOS Mojave where the mission control keyboard shortcut “Move left a space” does nothing. Here are the details and what I have tried:


  • Move right a space and all other Mission control shortcuts / features work perfectly.
  • Move left a space does not work for all spaces (tested multiple desktops next to each other, tested multiple full screen windows, tested desktop to fullscreen spaces etc.)

Attempted Fixes:

  • Booting into safe mode exhibited the same behavior, no fix
  • Changing keyboard shortcut had no affect
  • Changing keyboard to external vs internal had no affect
  • Enabling / disabling the keyboard shortcut in preferences and trying again had no affect.
  • Trying on both external and internal displays.

If anyone has any ideas for what to try or is experiencing the same issue please let me know!
