For years now I've been using Ctrl+Alt+T to open a new terminal window. Just now for the first time it took my existing window and created two panes within it:


^^ New terminal session with ~/.bashrc start up commands showing date, time and system information. ie No commands run yet

I must have hit a different key combination as I just tried it again double checking as I pressed Ctrl+Alt+T and a new window as normal.

As I might want to utilize this feature in the future, What key combination did I use?

    Just to follow up, I use Ctrl+Shift+T all the time now. One of those rare instances where an accident turns out positive. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Mar 29 '18 at 23:22

    @WinEunuuchs2Unix I think you should open a new Q&A showing how you did that. I would totally upvote! =) – Terrance Mar 30 '18 at 3:37

    I already had a Ubuntu on Windows 10 Q&A but it isn't detailed enough with code and doesn't target Ubuntu on Ubuntu (sounds weird I know). I want to adjust widget screen spacing and extend the PS1 line prompt separator before I post a new self answered Q&A. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Mar 30 '18 at 17:03
