Windows and tabs

You can chose whether to open a new tab or a new Terminal window when you use Open Terminal.

  1. Select Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ General.

  2. Set Open new terminals in: to Tab or Window.

Once you have set the preference, you can use Ctrl to invert the preference. For example, if you have your preferences set to open a new terminal in a new tab, then pressing New Terminal will open a new tab. On the other hand, if you hold down Ctrl and then press New Terminal, then a new window will be opened instead.
