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:

Edit Default Shortcut          
Window title Ctrl+Alt+W
Tab title Ctrl+Alt+A
Terminal title Ctrl+Alt+X

Source: the Terminator official documentation, in the Setting Titles section

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.
