Does anyone know if there´s a shortcut to switch between tabs in Google Spreadsheets?

If you use CTRL+PgUp / CTRL+PgDown like in Excel you switch between Chrome or Firefox's tabs instead.

Use the following short cuts.


Ctrl + Shift + PageDown ==> Move to next sheet (Cmd + Shift + Fn + Down arrow on a Mac)

Ctrl + Shift + PageUp ==> Move to previous sheet (Cmd + Shift + Fn + Up arrow on a Mac)

Is it possible to change that shortcut somewhere? That's really cumbersome as is. – Joel Glovier Feb 21 '14 at 18:30
Aha - you can also use cmd+Shift+PageDown or cmd+Shift+PageUp on Mac. – Joel Glovier Feb 21 '14 at 18:40
But Ctrl + Shift + PageDown is move tabs in Chrome... – Bharath Raja Feb 23 '14 at 7:04

Ugh, that is a really nasty shortcut on Mac. – James Duffy Oct 29 '14 at 2:03

Download better touch tool to replace that ugly shortcut with a pretty one. I use the excel shortcut alt up and down :]
