I am a terminal junkie and use it all the time...literally. Is there any way to be able to switch between tabs with Command+Number (eg. Command+1 for tab 1).

Yes, I know about iTerm, I'm just wondering if its possible to do this with stock terminal, since I am quite fond of it.

You can move left and right through tabs with CMD + SHIFT + ] for right and CMD + SHIFT + [ for left.

Not necessarily choosing exactly which tab.

  • I already know this, and its not what I want. Guess Ill have to switch to iterm after all. Commented Feb 10, 2013 at 4:45
