How to return to the Desktop Environment from tty in Fedora

As you know you enter tty from the Desktop Envrionment by pressing either Ctrl+Alt+F2 or Ctrl+ Alt +F3 up till Ctrl+Alt+F6 (notice how in Fedora Ctrl+Alt+F1 doesn’t get you in any tty).

Let’s say for the sake of argument you are in tty4 (which you enter by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4) and you want to return to the Desktop Environment, all you have to do is press Alt+F1 (this key combo will return you from any tty back to the Desktop Environment).

Another neat “trick” to switch between several tty’s is the following, if you are for example in tty3 and want to go to tty2 all you have to do is press Alt+F2 and you are in tty2. Nice huh?

Btw, let’s not use the comment section of this post to debate my Google skills okay  photo talktothehand.gif
