I'd like to be able to switch between 'Query Result' windows, and it's a pain having to use a pointer (mouse/touchpad) each time.

use Shift+F5 to go to the tab on the left

works on version 3.0 – Tshepang Feb 6 '12 at 15:15
+1 from me, but my opinion is this is useless knowledge :) – Florin Ghita Nov 21 '12 at 13:54
see @chrismarx answer for mac with current version – chrismarx Aug 30 '13 at 16:39

Apparently no. See if you can create a new shortcut in Tools > Preferences > Shortcut Keys.

What version are you using? My says Shortcut Keys instead of Accelerator. – Tshepang Nov 24 '10 at 19:47
Using, the keyboard shortcuts actually works, but in a rather buggy way, and not all tab types (EG, Query Results). – Tshepang Nov 24 '10 at 19:49
Works great in SQL Developer 4.1.3, this is the way to go. Shift-Cmd-] and [ assigned, as standard. – SilverSideDown Apr 16 at 18:47

Use Ctrl+tab to shift between tabs in sql developer.

As of which version? The answers above indicate that it's not possible. – nhinkle Sep 13 '11 at 7:12

For version 3.2 on a Mac, the Shortcut Key you're looking for is


Command:Previous File

By default it's set to Command+F3

It is as @mathias-scheer wrote (use Shift+F5 to go to the tab on the left, use Alt+Shift+F5 to go to the tab on the right) (at least for 3.2.20.xx), but you can also change your shortcuts keys to your own preferences. You do this via Tools/Preferences/Shortcut Keys.
