I'm using 18.04.1 LTS. I looked at the related questions, but they seem to suggest that Alt+Tab is also affected and somehow related, which is not the case for me.

    Does it only happen for chrome? It's back for many apps, what happens in your file manager or firefox, ect? – doug Jul 29 '18 at 22:07
  • No longer happens for me after installing all the updates. – Dan Dascalescu Dec 31 '18 at 3:38

This is a known bug. See Alt+left/right arrows switch between tty consoles (Gnome Shell vanishes), cannot disable for details.

For what it's worth, the same thing happens in Firefox.
