Is there a key for switching between terminal and file browser?

Asked by worldsayshi on 2012-03-04

I have the terminal open, browsing around. I would like to switch between browsing and using the terminal without clicking it with the mouse. Is there a shortcut key? (§ would be somehow intuitive)

Edit: Ok, so, using f4 somehow does the trick. Although I'm wondering if there is a way to switch without closing down the terminal? I may get used to f4 eventually though..

There is no shortcut implemented for giving the focus to the terminal.

For anyone wondering about this, you can use shift+tab or F4 (hide/unhide) to gain focus to the terminal, and F5 to regain focus of the filelisting.

Can you help with this problem?
