In Windows, when you press Alt and Tab together, then repeatedly press Tab while holding down on the Alt, you see a list of all open windows and you can toggle between them.

In Notepad++ and other editors, you can do the same thing with editor tabs using the Ctrl+Tab combo.

Question: Although Sublime Text supports basic Ctrl-Tab, it doesn't support the ability to view a list of all the tabs while keeping the Ctrl tab held down (as does Notepad++). Is there some plugin that provides this functionality, or an alternate key-combination I'm not aware of?


In sublime text you can use Ctrl+P to show a list of open files ordered by LRU (as in Ctrl+tab document switching). But it requires more keystrokes than the Ctrl+tab way.

    But I agree with you. A document switching without an ordered list of documents is annoying and a bit useless. I have been looking for years for this feature. For me, an editor that doesn't support this is a broken editor. – Manel R. Doménech Apr 20 '16 at 22:20
