Cycle through KDE window tabs?


I have KDE 4.5.5, and I am wondering how to setup a key-sequence to cycle through window tabs. Thanks

The key sequence may already exist. Try ctrl-tab and alt-tab.

If neither one works. go to the KDE control center. If I remember correctly, it's in the Regional settings. Select keyboard. Somewhere in there you can define key sequences. Just be careful that you don't create a conflict with an existing key sequence.

window tabs, not tabs in a window

No, I am talking about window tabs, not tabs within windows (like tabs in Firefox).

I answered my own question. Go to the "Global Keyboard Shortcuts" system setting, select the KWin "KDE Component", search for "tab", and "Walk Through Window Tabs" will appear. You can then set a keybinding for it.
