How can I cycle through SplitScreen windows?

I can only find a NextConsole shortcut.

Hm, "cycle" exactly? There is no special shotcut for this action. Ctrl+Tab use common (and intuitive) combo for switching between tabs. But I can't remember any "well known" combo for splits.

BTW, when you start switching tabs with Ctrl+Tab and holding Ctrl you may press or to goto left or right tab.


Build 121119 or higher allows switching between visible panes with Apps+Tab and Apps+Shift+Tab.

And it is possible now to close visible panes (active group) from tab menu, system menu or keyboard shortcut (unassigned by default).

In tmux in linux it's called next-pane. Sometimes it's nice to have a command line and a text editor in two panes; then toggle back and forth. If I use <kbd>Ctrl</kbd><kbd>Tab</kbd> and I have other tabs open I often end up in the next window. – William Bettridge-Radford Nov 15 '12 at 21:43
And what hotkey provides tmux? – Maximus Nov 15 '12 at 21:46
Prefix schemes are not supported by conemu, may be in future... Thought, Apps+Tab may be used for requested action. – Maximus Nov 15 '12 at 22:31
What is Apps? Is it a media key? – William Bettridge-Radford Nov 16 '12 at 0:01
It is a key near to right Win – Maximus Nov 16 '12 at 5:41

AutoHotKey script that will toggle between two panes.

Toggle_Pane() {
    global pane_toggle
    pane_toggle := !pane_toggle
    if pane_toggle
        ControlClick, VirtualConsoleClass1
        ControlClick, VirtualConsoleClass2

SC056 & o::Toggle_Pane()
