Keyboard shortcuts: alt+1 ... alt+9 to change tab

  • I'm requesting Opera to support the same key combination for switching directly to a given tab as supported by Firefox and Chrome.

    Following keys currently do nothing. They should match Firefox and Chrome behavior:

    Alt+1: switch to first tab counted from left
    Alt+2: switch to second tab counted from left
    Alt+3: switch to 3th tab counted from left
    Alt+4: switch to 4th tab counted from left
    Alt+5: switch to 5th tab counted from left
    Alt+6: switch to 6th tab counted from left
    Alt+7: switch to 7th tab counted from left
    Alt+8: switch to 8th tab counted from left
    Alt+9: switch to LAST tab

    Version: 40.0.2308.81
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (x86_64; X-Cinnamon)

  • It seems that Opera only supports Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, Ctrl+3 etc for this feature. Firefox and Chrome support both Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, ... and Alt+1, Alt+2, ...

    I guess it's time for me to learn to use Ctrl instead of Alt for this feature in all browsers I use.

  • Hi @mtrantalainen, you can add your custom key bindings for this functionality in opera:settings/configureCommands > Switch to X tab.
