A few useful keybindings for Window Manager in Xfce

xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Down             tile_down_left_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Left             tile_up_left_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Right            tile_down_right_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Up               tile_up_right_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Down                  tile_down_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Left                  tile_left_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Right                 tile_right_key
xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts /xfwm4/custom/Up                    tile_up_key

I found that by having these values, I can use the keyboard to control the window placement with almost identical functionality as Cinnamon. This was one of the key differences (no pun intended) for me between Xfce and Cinnamon.

To import these settings with that input as is, check out xfconf.sh. I describe it here on the blog at xfconf-query save and load from file
