  • In some cases Ctrl+PgUp/Dn works, but not in many others, i.e. in keyboard settings switch between typing and shortcuts tabs or in appearance settings between look and behavior tabs. – Rahmani Apr 26 '14 at 17:34

Ctrl+Tab to cycle tabs (also: Ctrl+T = open new tab, Ctrl+W = close tab) is now being implemented in many applications that use tabs:

  • internet browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Opera,
  • file managers (Nautilus, Nemo, Dolphin, PCManFM),
  • also Audacious, Clementine, Adobe Reader, Pidgin, Qbittorrent, WPS Office suite.

I think I found it.

Ctrl+Page Up/Down and if didn't work add and Alt key, Ctrl+Alt+Page Up/Down (and still doesn't work in some apps :( ).

I think if it was like Windows it was very easier. I used to use Ctrl+Tab in all apps like Chrome, Firefox, Settings in Control Panel and tabs in every app that had tabs in it.
