I tried to change from prefix - : to prefix - ; in tmux and it doesn't seem to work.

Edit 1:


For a tmux prompt you hit, prefix then : (i.e shift + ;).
I want to change it to , prefix then ; (i.e just ;).

    I'm... not sure what the question is here? Plus, you seem to indicate that you've already found the answer...

I figured it out with help from Orlandocollins

add this to your .tmux.conf and switch the key bindings.

# tmux prompt key 
unbind ';'
unbind ':'
bind-key ';' command-prompt
bind-key : last-pane
