How to change keyboard shortcut for tab switching?

  • Hi,

    How do I change the keyboard shortcuts for tab switching?

    I need to change the tab switch keys to Ctrl-PgUP and Ctrl-PgDn.

    Anyone know how to do this, or if there's an extension to make this work?

  • The shortcut is Control–Tab and Control–Shift–Tab.

    By enabling the Advanced keyboard shortcut setting, you can use 1 and 2.

    In the upcoming Opera 12, you can use Command–Option–Left and Right as well.

    You can achieve the specific shortcut you wanted by modifying the Preferences file. This is unsupported and I will thus not provide exact steps. There are other examples in the forums and elsewhere on the Web for doing things like this.
