Key commands in Terminator

  • 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.

    It has to be noted that from screenshot in OP's question it's apparent OP is using the "Terminator" terminal emulator. The shortcut for a different terminal emulator may be different. For instance, I am using Sakura terminal emulator , which uses Alt+arrow keys – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Jan 7 '16 at 7:03

Ctrl + Shift + E Split terminals vertically
Ctrl + Shift + W Close current Panel
Ctrl + Shift + T Open new tab
Alt + 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

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.
