I wonder if there is a way to preview all workspaces simultaneously and see what windows are opened on them.

p.s. For example like in gnome shell when you touch left top corner.

Not in (pure) i3 since this requires compositing and i3 is not a compositing window manager.

However, as long as your X server has compositing enabled (which it most likely will), you can use an external tool such as skippy-xd.
