Control-Tab to switch between open documents

  • Notepad++ is a great great program, but can I put in a feature request?

    The interface that pops up when you press Control-Tab to switch between open tabs… My opinion is that it should work like every other Windows app that supports Control-Tab … that is, each time you press this key combination, the next tab becomes active. Do it over and over to easily cycle through the open tabs. With the current (nonstandard) Notepad++ interface, pressing Control-Tab brings up some sort of list, where you then have to select the tab you want to jump to. If I knew what tab I wanted to go to I would have just clicked on that tab. If others like this feature, then perhaps Control-Tab can behave like other multi-tab programs, and Control-Alt-Tab can bring up this document list.
