  • Hi!

    When I hit ctrl + tab and then hit ESC to cancel the tab switch, I am seeing that the preview disappears however, the switch still occurs. Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

    Is there any workaround to this?


  • Welcome to Opera forums @Necrome!

    Go to: OMenu > Settings > "Search" >> Shortcuts

    And reset them.

    The previews and tab menu should be hidden once you release the keyboard keys.

  • @zalex108 thank you for your response, however, my problem is not that the previews are persistent. It is that once I hit ctrl+tab, I see the previews. Now, if I want to cancel the tab switch, there is nothing I can do. Hitting ESC doesn't stop the switch (browser navigates to the next tab).

    Is this a bug or is there a key combination that I can press that can cancel the navigation? Thanks.

  • Ctrl-Tab is the navigation key, use Ctrl-Shift-Tab to navgate back.

  • @sgunhouse thanks for the response. Ok, so then there is no cancel mechanism for the navigation. This is different than Firefox (tab-switch with preview) and Mac OS x app navigation; both allow cancellation of the navigation.
