I can navigate through windows by clicking prefix + window number, but when there are really large number of them it gets very inconvenient. I'd like to have a ability to navigate through them by selecting an appropriate one from the list. I mean something like this:

How to show such a window-selection list dialog?


Ctrl b, w will list all windows. To rebind it, you may put these lines to your .tmux.conf

# -n means it doesn't require ctrl+b as prefix.  
bind-key -n F2 next-window #f2 goes to next window. 
bind-key -n F1 previous-window
bind-key -n f3 choose-window #f3 displays window list.
