Ubuntu – the “Grave” button


The quick help of Unity (long press on the Super button) shows that Switch windows of current application can be triggered by Alt+Grave keyboard shortcut. What is Grave?

This is usually the button immediately above the TAB on most keyboards.

For my keyboard - grave is actually correctly known as the ` key - grave is also known as the back-tick.

In my travels I have seen the Ubuntu "key above the tab" to actually be the § or º. I'm sure there are many other similar characters on peoples keyboards.

Depending on your locality if you press and hold the SUPER to display the overlay, you should see the equivalent Grave key for your locality

for example:

For my keyboard combination - ALT+` - gives you this switching capability (cycle through the windows group):

To use this key combination - let go of the grave without letting go of Alt and then repress grave to cycle through the windows group.
