Is there a hotkey to switch between tabs in the default terminal app?


For those keyboard ninjas who hate using the mouse, switching between tabs in your browser window is essential since most people probably have a bunch of tabs open at once. I personally use my mouse for navigating tabs, but there are times when it’s easier to just use the keyboard, like when I am doing a lot of typing and need to get some info from a different tab quickly.

Depending on your browser, the keyboard shortcuts do vary a little bit, but luckily a lot of them are similar.

Keyboard shortcut: switch between tabs

I am trying to find the keyboard shortcut to switch between these tabs. (E.g. Alt+1/2/3 as with the Gnome terminal.)

TotalTerminal has an installer

Download latest TotalTerminal.dmg and run the installer. Configure your keyboard trigger by selecting the Preferences... -> TotalTerminal and edit your keyboard hot-key. By default it is CTRL+~.

Then you can trigger Visor Window with your hot-key from any application to get an instant terminal session.

To hide Visor window, you can either:

For older versions please search the internet for Visor by Blacktree.
