Ctrl+Tab to switch between Windows in OS X Application

If your OS background is Windows, you’re used to use CTRL+TAB to switch between the Windows inside an application. In OS X this doesn’t work and some people even suggest to buy third party tools. But there’s a simple solution inside the OS X Keyboard settings:

  • Open Keyboard settings
  • Select “Keyboard & Text Input”
  • Find “Move focus to next window”
  • Double click the current keyboard shortcut
  • Change it by hitting CTRL+TAB on your keyboard

Btw: CTRL+TAB doesn’t work in Sublime. You have to edit your .sublime-keymap (SHIFT+CMD+P -> “Key Bindings - User”) and paste this:

1
2

[
   { "keys": ["ctrl+tab"], "command": "next_view" },
   { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+tab"], "command": "prev_view" }
]
