I'm a bit puzzled by the following keyboard shortcuts in Ubunutu terminal:
- CTRL + Left, CTRL + Right to navigate words
- ALT + Backspace to delete entire word at the left of the cursor
I'm mainly a Windows user, and I'm accustomed to the powershell defaults for the three commands described above: CTRL + Left, CTRL + Right, CTRL + Backspace.
Lately I've been working with putty to ssh into linux machines or with MongoDB shell, where the default shortcuts are: ALT + Left, ALT + Right, ALT + Backspace.
I've had no problem switching between the CTRL and ALT-based keyword combinations so far.
But the Ubuntu terminal settings are a combination of the two, which is quite confusing for me.
Is there a way to change these settings to make them use either CTRL or ALT, but not both?
