Ubuntu – How to switch between tabs opened in gnome-terminal and also close any particular tab using shortcut key


I can open as many terminal tabs I want using Ctrl++Shift+T.

But for some reason, I'm not able to switch the tabs using Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown. So what is the shortcut-key to switch in between tabs?

Also, what do I do to close any particular tabs using the shortcut keys?

You can switch the tabs using Ctrl+PgDn to next tabs and Ctrl+PgUp for the previous tabs.

Reordering can be done using Ctrl+Shift+PgDn and Ctrl+Shift+PgUp.

Also Alt+1 to Alt + 0 can be used to switch tabs starting from 1 to 10. Where Alt+1 is for 1st tab in terminal, Alt+2 is for 2nd tab ... Alt+0 is for 10th tab.

If more than 10 tabs are opened then you've to switch using the shortcut mentioned above. i,e Ctrl+PgDn and Ctrl+PgUp

To close any selected tabs use Ctrl+Shift+W
