Workspace Toggle Indicator - How to Hide in Ubuntu 18.04


Every time I switch between workspaces in Ubuntu 18.04, I get this thing on the screen (picture below). Is there any way to completely hide it? I want to be able to switch between workspaces instantly without that indicator lingering for a second on my screen.

You may use a GNOME shell extension called Disable Workspace Switcher Popup. This extension

Disables the overlay displayed when switching between workspaces.

Check out this extension at GitHub.

Another similar extension is No Workspace Switcher Popup. Note that this one has not been updated for a long time, but it still works with recent GNOME shell versions (3.26/3.28/3.30).
