Usually I have several gnome-terminals running, with several tabs each. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to navigate across them. Alt-Tab only navigates across windows, not across terminals's tabs.

Is there anything that could display to me Titles of ALL tabs that I have opened across all gnome-terminals, and let me jump to it ?




Alt+number, e.g. Alt+1 for tab 1 and so on, also works.

  • +1 Useful to know. This appears to work for other tabbed applications too. – Richard Holloway Oct 29 '10 at 10:36

Ctrl<.kbd>-PgUp and PgDn and should do the trick

  • That only navigates within the tabs of the currently opened terminal. I wanna navigate across all tabs globally. – ikaushan Oct 28 '10 at 23:02

Useful gnome-terminal shortcuts:

Ctrl+Shift+T :- Open new tabs.

Ctrl+Shift+W :- Close the current tabs.

Ctrl+Shift+Q :- Close all tabs.

Ctrl+Shift+C :- copy to clipboard

Ctrl+Shift+V :- paste from clipboard


Perhaps consider using Terminator? I switched to it as my primary terminal. It lets you create new tabs (switching by Ctrl + PgUp/Ctrl + PgDn) and split the window horizontally or vertically. https://edge.launchpad.net/terminator
