I would like to switch between tabs within an Oracle editor window without having to take my hands away from the keyboard.

I know I can switch between windows using Ctrl+Tab.

    The 'standard' is ctrl-tab which you already mentioned isn't it.

    What is that editor?

    Hi, that looks like the TOAD editor.

    According to the help, in the list of Populate Shortcut Keys, it shows the following:

    CTRL+TAB     Cycle through a collection of "child windows" or tabs in a window

    I've tried this and it does cycle through TOAD windows, but not the tabs within a window.  I'll keep looking, but I don't think you can do what you want.

    Try using ALT+PAGE DOWN and ALT+PAGE UP.

    These seem to work, but they also pop up the data grid!

    Sorry, yes, I am using Toad.
