Session Tabs

The GNOME Terminal calls each session a tab because it uses tabs to keep track of multiple sessions running within the window. Figure 19-2 shows a GNOME Terminal window with three session tabs active.

You can right-click in the tab window to see the tab menu. This quick menu lets you do a few things in the tab session:

♦ Open Terminal: Open a new GNOME Terminal window with a default tab session.

♦ Open Tab: Open a new session tab in the existing GNOME Terminal window.

♦ Close Tab: Close the current session tab.

♦ Copy: Copy highlighted text in the current session tab to the clipboard.

♦ Paste: Paste data from the clipboard to the current session tab at the cursor location.

♦ Change Profile: Change the profile for the current session tab.

♦ Edit Current Profile: Edit the profile for the current session tab.

♦ Show Menu Bar: Toggle whether the menu bar is hidden or visible.

♦ Input Methods: Set the types of inputs (including special language keys) allowed in the Terminal window.

The quick menu provides easy access to commonly used actions that are available from the standard menu bar in the Terminal window.
