How can I make control-tab (and control-shift-tab) behave sensibly in Notepad++? I would like these shortcuts to behave as they do in my web browser, ie. control-tab moves focus to the next tab to the right, control-shift-tab to the tab to the left. Currently they change tab seemingly at random.
This answer by Luke Scammell has a very full explanation, as well as instructions for creating your own preferred keyboard shortcuts (I prefer Alt+LeftArrow and Alt+RightArrow).
Note that in the current version of NP++ (6.6.7) the lines to change in Settings / Shortcut Mapper are lines 219/220 (about 7 up from bottom of list).
Also, Luke includes an autohotkey macro/script that allows you to retain the default NP++ behaviour, but still use your preferred keyboard shortcuts in addition to the defaults.
