changing the function of ctrl and tab

Hey peeps.

I came over to using slackware a few weeks ago and have since got opera installed and some other programs. The thing is that In windows when I use opera by pressing ctrl and tab it cycles through the windows in the opera program. but in linux it cycles through the desktops, how can I change this?

Thanks for help

That really depends on your window manager. The application key binding are overiding the window manager key bindings so you have to point to the root with the mouse pointer to switch back key bindinds. You would want to search for key bindings settings for your window manager and find out if they can overide all application key bindings.
