CRTL + TAB: Switching Eclipse Tabs

3 December 2013

I use the Eclipse IDE to write Java code. When moving from Visual Studio I miss the fact that you can use CTRL + TAB to change tabs. I found a way to get this working!

This is what you need to do!

Install C++ Development Tools

Click 'Help' –> 'Install New Software'

Install New Software

Select '–All Avaliable Sites—' and type 'c++ development tools' in the filter.

All Available Sites

Tick 'C/C++ Development Tools''

Then 'Window' –> 'Preferences''


Filter with key and select 'Microsoft Visual Studio' as the scheme.
