Gnome 3: How to Alt Tab windows on current workspace only

By default Gnome 3 "Alt Tab" switches windows on all workspaces.
As I prefer to have many workspaces with little amount of windows on each of them this behaviour does not work for me well.

I want to switch windows on the active workspace only.

When googling for gnome 3 alt tab same workspace the Alt Tab Workspace extension is the top result.

After looking at the code on GitHub it turns out that this following command does the trick:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.app-switcher current-workspace-only true

No extension needed.

We can set Alt+Tab for switch Windows and Super+Tab for Switch Applications in keyboard settings
