It's working, Thanks for your answer – Amila Sampath Jan 7 at 6:28
It has to be noted that from screenshot in OP's question it's apparent OP is using the "Terminator" terminal emulator. The shortcut for a different terminal emulator may be different. For instance, I am using Sakura terminal emulator , which uses Alt+arrow keys – Serg Jan 7 at 7:03
Konsole uses Shift+arrow keys. – Mr Lister Jan 7 at 12:38

Here are some useful commands form ArchWiki for the Terminator:

F11 Toggle fullscreen
Ctrl + Shift + O Split terminals horizontally
Ctrl + Shift + E Split terminals vertically
Ctrl + Shift + W Close current Panel
Ctrl + Shift + T Open new tab
Alt + Move to the terminal above the current one
Alt + Move to the terminal below the current one
Alt + Move to the terminal left of the current one
Alt + Move to the terminal right of the current one

You cal also check out the settings to see all Keyboard shortcuts or to set your own shortcuts.
