Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I love Chrome and Chromium, but when I go full screen, I can't get to my other tabs anymore, which I can with Firefox. So my questions are:

Am I alone or is this universal?

Is there a fix?

Is there some useful keyboard shortcut to switch tabs?

Thanks in advance!

I think full screen is designed for getting more space, so tabs do not appear in full screen.


  • Ctrl + Page Up or Ctrl + Tab: Next Tab
  • Ctrl + Page Up or Ctrl + Shift + Tab: Previous Tab
  • F11: Enter/Leave Full screen
  • Ctrl + T: New Tab
  • Ctrl + W: Close Tab
