I simply love Tabs in any Browser. God knows how many browser windows I open with multiple Tabs on it. But it becomes hard to manage them once you open too many Tabs in a single browser window. The most irritating part is to use mouse to perform simple tasks and that's why I prefer to use some Keyboard Shortcuts to fasten my work.
Fortunately, all the Web Browsers supports most common Keyboard Shortcuts, which really helps a lot in many ways. Find below most important Keyboard Shortcuts which you can use in any web browser.
Keyboard Shortcuts For Browser Tabs
Open New Tab
CTRL + T
to open New Tab in any Browser.
Close Browser Tab
CTRL + W
to close any Tab in any Browser.
Go To Next Browser Tab
If you have open many Tabs in a browser window, than you can use
CTRL + TAB
key to view next open Tab.
Go To Previous Browser Tab
UIf you have open many Tabs in a browser window se
CTRL + SHIFT + TAB
key to view previous Tab.
Switch Between The Tabs
The formula is
CTRL + n
(where n is a Tab number from 1 to 8). For e.g. If you want to open Tab no. 4, then press CTRL + 4.
However, If you have opened more than 9 Tabs in a browser, than pressing the CTRL + 9 will open the last Tab in the browser.
Since there are only 9 numeric keys on your keyboard, that's why you cannot open Tab no. 10 or 11 and so on using this keyboard shortcut. But you can press CTRL + 8 and then use CTRL + TAB to go to next open Tab.
Re-Open Closed Browser Tab
If you accidently closed any browser tab and want to re-open it, than simply use
CTRL + SHIFT + T
