Weird issue - keyboard shortcut, cycle tabs

  • Short story: I'm unable to assign keyboard shortcut ctrl+tab to action 'Cycle forward through tabs'

    However, I am able to assign a different keyboard kombination e.g ctrl+q to that specific action.

    Yes, I've tried resetting shortcuts. Any ideas?

  • Find the existing function on Ctrl+Tab and remove it, you can't have two different function using the same shortcut.

  • @sgunhouse Thanks for response. There is no action associated with ctrl+tab.

    As I mentioned, I also tried to reset shortcuts, at which ctrl+tab isn't working, but cycle tabs works when I assign another shortcut e.g. ctrl+q

  • @radiv Ctrl Tab is for cycling through tabs already.

  • @leocg 🙂 Pardon if I was unclear.

    After resetting keyboard shortcuts, ctrl+tab does not cycle tabs. It is not working.

    Currently, I have ctrl+q for cycle tabs and no functionality assigned to ctrl+tab.

    Otherwise no issues about keyboard setup on computer as I'm aware. It's only in opera.

  • @radiv It's working here. Did you check your hardware? Did you try resetting Opera settings? Did you try a clean Opera profile?

    What happens when you try to use Ctrl + Tab?

  • @leocg Nothing happens when i use Ctrl-tab, and - after assigning ctrl+q to cycle tab, if i try to assign back ctrl+tab, I get no response from the GUI, it won't let me assign ctrl+tab.

    Come to think of it, I have a software called 'autohotkey' installed. Although I only use it for another key (for 'next track' in spotify without spotify being in focus), it might interfere. Wouldn't think so, but its the only I can imagine.

    Anyway, I primarily wanted to check out if this was a known bug. Since its not, and since its so weird, i assume it's related to my system. I miss my linux.
