I have the Preferences set to open a new terminal in a tab, rather than in a window. Even after closing all instances of the terminal and relaunching it, new instances still open in another window.
Which one is it?
With a terminal open:
Ctrl-Shift-T will open a new terminal in a new tab
Ctrl-Shift-N will open a new terminal in a new window
Not sure if this is how you do it but perhaps it helps?
Edit: correction of the keyboards shortcuts
That is what it says in the shortcut section in the Preferences.
But then, in the General section, how should I interpret “Open new terminals in” which I have set to tab
It doesn’t seem to have any effect on how you set it on my end either
Have a quick read of this and it will explain the option
I am sorry, but I am probably too dim to understand what they mean by
“then pressing New Terminal will open a new tab”
How do you press New Terminal, where is that button?
File->New Terminal (from the menu bar)
This seems to be intended to work with the + button on the terminal bar.
If you have chosen to open a new terminal in a new tab, then:
pressing the + button will open a new terminal in a new tab
pressing Ctrl-+ will open it in a new window
The shortcuts still as mentioned before
I don’t have a +button on the terminal bar, there is only the 3-bar hamburger.
Anyhow, no problem. I prefer keyboard shortcuts, so I’ll go with
Thank you for your help.
Got it. Thanks for bearing with me
You’re welcome mate
