In the 'Terminator' terminal emulator I can rename windows using: Alt+T. Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut (or how to create one) for renaming tabs?

1 Answer 1


Titles can be set using

Window title: Ctrl+Alt+W
Tab title: Ctrl+Alt+A
Terminal title: Ctrl+Alt+X

note: you may run into issues with Ctrl+Alt+A hiding the window instead. Right click inside the terminal and go to preferences>keybindings and change hide_window to something else
