MacOS: Ctrl+Tab/Ctrl+Shift+Tab for navigating between tabs

Post by ttg »

hello, I am trying to navigate between tabs in viewer mode on macOS 12.4 and the ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab hotkeys don't seem to be working. Is it possible to use a hotkey to navigate between tabs on macOS?

Hello,
Yes, it is possible to use a hotkey to navigate between tabs in macOS. The default hotkey to switch between tabs in most applications on macOS is Command+Option+Arrow key (left or right). This should work in the viewer mode of most applications as well.

If this hotkey does not work for you, it's possible that the application you are using has a different set of hotkeys for tab navigation. You can check the application's documentation or preferences to see if there is a different hotkey for tab navigation.

Alternatively, you can also try using the Control+Tab or Control+Shift+Tab hotkeys, as you mentioned in your question. These hotkeys may not work in all applications, but they are commonly used in web browsers to navigate between tabs.

If none of these hotkeys work for you, it's possible that the application you are using does not support tab navigation via hotkeys. In this case, you may need to use the mouse or trackpad to switch between tabs.

I hope this helps!
