It's as simple as using arrow keys.

As for the second part, is this what you wanted?

@Nano8Blazex Heh, I didn't know that one. Learning something new all the time. – ephilip Sep 6 '11 at 1:59
I wonder what other keys did the OP try besides the arrow keys. HJKL? – surfasb Sep 6 '11 at 3:34
For some odd reason, I was trying Ctrl + F1/1, Alt + F1/1...don't know why that didn't occur to me. :P And yes, that link aptly describes what I ultimately wanted to do. So TYVM. – ray023 Sep 6 '11 at 12:55
