  • Toggle fullscreen: F11
  • Split terminals horizontally: Ctrl + Shift + O
  • Split terminals vertically: Ctrl + Shift + E
  • Close current Panel: Ctrl + Shift + W
  • Open new tab: Ctrl + Shift + T
  • Move to the terminal above the current one: Alt +
  • Move to the terminal below the current one: Alt +
  • Move to the terminal left of the current one: Alt +
  • Move to the terminal right of the current one: Alt +

This maybe useful.

    The shortcut for a different terminal emulator may be different. For instance, I am using Sakura terminal emulator , which uses Alt+arrow keys Jan 7, 2016 at 7:03

    I don't see the point of copying the text from my answer to your answer. Sep 21, 2017 at 10:06

  1. vi ~/.config/terminator/config
  2. set up

------------ before ------------ 
[keybindings]
    switch_to_tab_1 = 
    switch_to_tab_10 =
    switch_to_tab_2 = 
    switch_to_tab_3 = 
    switch_to_tab_4 = 
    switch_to_tab_5 =
    switch_to_tab_6 =
    switch_to_tab_7 =
    switch_to_tab_8 =
    switch_to_tab_9 =

In the Terminal window, right click on mouse, select Preferences > Key settings > switch_to_tab_1~10 keybinding > Enter shortcut to use

Although I like @incBrain response because he provides several shortcuts, in order to move between terminal tabs, these two work for me:

Ctrl + tab Next terminal in the current tab

Ctrl + Shift + tab Previous in the current tab

Ctrl + Page Up Next tab

Ctrl + Page Down Previous tab

Use the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+PgDown or PgUp.
