CTRL+TAB in Eclipse

By default, CTRL+Tab (forward switching of windows) and CTRL+SHIFT+TAB (previous switching of windows) aren’t set in Eclipse to switch between editors windows. There are other Eclipse, non-standard defaults like CTRL+F6 for forward switching. To set these shortcuts, do the following:

  1. Run Eclipse
  2. Window -> Preferences
  3. General -> Keys
  4. Search for: Next Editor
  5. Put the cursor in the “Binding” textbox and delete that hotkey. Then, press and hold CTRL+TAB
  6. Hit Apply.
  7. Search for: Previous Editor
  8. Put the cursor in the “Binding” textbox and delete that hotkey. Then, press and hold CTRL+SHIFT+TAB
  9. Hit Apply and OK.

Apply similar steps for Ctrl+Shift+Tab.
