If I have multiple tabs open, how do I move from one to another? (Ubuntu 11.10; gedit 3.2.1)

    Ctrl+N is new tab. Then Alt+Number is for switch tabs. Ctrl+W is for closing the tab. – Anonymous Nov 6 '11 at 21:00

To move to the previous tab (left): Ctrl + Alt + PageUp
To move to the next tab (right): Ctrl + Alt + PageDown

    Would also love a link to how to customize these shortcuts, so that they comply with standards that every other app uses (i.e., "ctrl + pgup"). – Todd Nov 22 '16 at 14:25

Alt + Number. In fact it works with many application that have tabs

You can install Control Your Tabs plugin, then four shortcuts get added:

  • Ctrl+Tab / Ctrl+Shift+Tab switch tabs in most recently used order.
  • Ctrl+Page Up / Ctrl+Page Down switch tabs in tabbar order.
