I've looked everywhere and don't see any way to quickly go to the previously active tab in iTerm2. Think of Ctrl+A A in Screen or Ctrl+B B in tmux.

Looks like it's not possible natively, any way to fix it via some script or patch?

cmd + 9 would go to the last tab on Mac OSX (Tested on iTerm2 Build 2.1.4)

  • that doesn't make sense at all.. after all you access tabs by hitting cmd + <tab number>

  • @abbood What do you mean that doesn't make sense at all? It works even with Chrome
