USABILITY: Change the Putty TABs with <ctrl><tab>

I really like using the Mremote handling 10 putty screens on routers & switches.
But always using the mouse to jump between the screens is brrrrrrrrrrrr.....!!!

Why not using <ctrl><tab> and <ctrl><shift><tab> to change the Putty TABs within the current Panel like every Explorer or Putty-CM ?

best regards....a big FAN

While you're at it, also can you make it such that when you Alt-Tab back to mRemoteNG that the Putty window has the active focus so you don't need to click in the window to begin typing again? Right now, the focus isn't on the Putty screen after a window context switch, so you have to manually click in the putty terminal before you can start typing.

Manual changing to Putty may be doable but there have been issues with key combos creating more bug than they solve in the past. It sounds easy enough, but ultimately may be delayed due to bugs it causes.

I have to second this feature request - CTRL TAB is the killer usability feature that's missing.

Gets my vote,
Ctrl Tab in Most Recently Used order would be great.

I usually have a bunch of putty session open, switching with ctrl tab would be very good.

Switching in Most Recently Used order is also very important, like Alt-Tab does in windows, and ctrl-tab does in most applications except Chrome :shock:

Agree it would be a good feature.

A working example for me is how Eclipse does it.
ctrl+F6 (configurable so can be changed to ctrl+tab of course) pops up a menu-window with the editors (sessions) in Most Recently Used order highlighting the first.
holding control down and pressing the hot key again moves the selection and on release the selected session will get focus.

Maybe a simpler version to implement could be hot-key shows a window with a list of sessions and use arrow keys + enter.
