Create a new Tmux Window
Tmux is one of the most useful tool when it comes to using a linux terminal.
Tmux is a terminal multiplexer, it allows a user to access multiple terminals (or windows), each running a separate program, while providing a single screen to work on. Tmux is useful for running more than one command-line program at the same time, increasing productivity and the way you work.
Let's look at how to create a new tmux window.
Create a new tmux window
Creating a new tmux window inside a session is easy, you just have to use the following keyboard shortcut-
Prefix + c
By default the prefix is
Ctrl-B, so to switch to previous window you can run the following command-
Ctrl-B + c
Note: You have to be inside a session. If you are outside a session, then attach to a session that you want to open, and then run the above keyboard shortcuts.
You can also rename the window, which will help you to identify windows by human-readable names.
