How I can open terminal with a keyboard shortcut? I can't open terminal pressing Ctrl+Alt+T in english layout. Can I assign my own keyboard shortcuts?


1 Answer 1


To open terminal press super + T

Super key = Windows key


To customize your shortcut key:

Open System settings -- > Keyboard --> Applications


Now select terminal on right side of window, then just press the shortcut key you want to assign.

For example:

If you want to assign ctrl+Alt+T

After highlighting terminal on right side of window, press ctrl+Alt+T. That's it.

  • Can I define somehow, to open the terminal always with focus, too?
