This is an old bug appearing in many bug reports. This bug report is from 2009.
FireFox and Windows both support Control+Tab for switching tabs. On many laptops Page Up might be hard to reach or poorly labeled. Even on most desktop keyboards Control+Page Up is impossible to perform with the left hand.
For one-handed shortcuts you can use Alt+1 for the first tab, Alt+2 for the second tab, etc.
Gnome’s design is for Control+Tab is used for switching panes within windows. For example from the main pane to the left side pane.
gsettings hack that doesn’t seem to work
A “hack” in this bug report illustrates these two
gsettings you can view before changing:
$ gsettings get org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Keybindings:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/keybindings/ next-tab '<Control>Page_Down' $ gsettings get org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Keybindings:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/keybindings/ prev-tab '<Control>Page_Up'
Then to change them use:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Keybindings:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/keybindings/next-tab '<Primary>Tab' $ gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Keybindings:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/keybindings/prev-tab '<Primary><Shift>Tab'
This successfully changes behavior switching between
gnome-terminal tabs but has no effect in Nautilus or even YAD.
