I have many screens and I use several windows. So is there a shortcut that allows me to come back to the previous window?

Suppose I am using the Terminal. Next I switched to Chrome. Without using Alt + Tab, is there a shortcut which will bring me back on the terminal, sort of like an undo shortcut?

  • Alt-Shift-Tab, probably – muru Feb 6 '17 at 4:35
  • @muru As you have experience with Python and C++, I would like to discuss with you without asking questions on askubuntu.com. Is there a place that we could discuss together? Of course, if you want. – user651174 Feb 6 '17 at 4:41
  • What muru said, except you need to hit Atl+Tab first and hold alt, and then while holding shift hit tab again. – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Feb 6 '17 at 4:41
  • @Serg ah, it's actually Alt-Ctrl-Tab then. That goes in the reverse direction directly, without having to press Alt-Tab first. Odd choice. J.Doe, sorry, I don't do general discussions much. If you have 20 rep anywhere on Stack Exchange, you can go to Ask Ubuntu Chat, where you'll find a lot of people discussing a lot of things. – muru Feb 6 '17 at 4:45

The shortcut for directly switching windows in reverse order in Unity is AltCtrlTab. While already in the AltTab menu, you can hold Shift to go in reverse order.

You mean reverse order? When you open chrome and terminal and files for examples.When you press Alt + Tab you can only go from chrome to terminal but to go back to chrome you need to pass files.

At that time use Alt+Shift+Tab which goes in reverser order.
