Hi Boyan,
Thanks for your reply ;-)

I just didn't note that difference,

FYI: Normally I start konqueror with a key combination I have defined in
kcontrol >>regional seetings >key combinations >Preset actions:
binding the command: '/usr/kde/3.5/bin/konqueror ~' to some key
combination like alt+ctrl+c. (I'm not absolutely shure about the lables
of the tags because I have to retranslate them from germna to english)
I that situation Konqueror opens with one tag and the first file in the
file windows with a dotted line frame. IIRC this means that this file is
'active': e.g. entering <enter> it will be opened with the program
corresponding to the MIME type.

To switch to the tree representation window the possibility seems to be
3 * <shift+tab>:
-> Going first to the address label of the tag (I didn't find any
reasonable action to be done there ?,-( ),
-> then the address field is 'activated' (showing it marked, i.e. it can
be edited, and with <enter> I can navigate to the new destination.
-> Finally the node corresponding to the directory whose contens are
shown in the files window is activated.

Once I have more than one tab the situation changes radically:
Normally I open a new tab with <alt+ctrl+d> to duplicate the actual
contents window. Again the first file in the list is 'active (dotted frame).
NOW I can switch to the tree windows (is that what you call 'side bar'?)
with ONE key combination <ctrl+tab>, and obviously again back with <tab>.

Same for me. For all of the rest I got lost in lots of tabs.

I'm very content that your hint made me test out this different behaviour.

Here too

Thanks + have a nice weekend
