CHVT(1) CHVT(1)

NAME chvt - change foreground virtual terminal

SYNOPSIS chvt N

DESCRIPTION The command chvt N makes /dev/ttyN the foreground terminal. (The cor- responding screen is created if it did not exist yet. To get rid of unused VTs, use deallocvt(1).) The key combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN (with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
