NAME

       chvt - change foreground virtual terminal

SYNOPSIS

       chvt N

DESCRIPTION

       The  command  chvt  N  makes  /dev/ttyN  the  foreground  terminal. The
       corresponding screen is created if it did not exist yet. To get rid  of
       unused VTs, use deallocvt(1).

       The  keymap  action  ‘Console_N’  (usually  bound  to  key  combination
       (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN, with N in the range 1-12, and to RightAlt-FN-12 with
       N  in  the range 13-24) also allows to switch to another VT, but really
       switches only if it is already allocated. This prevents allocating  new
       VTs with a misplaced keystroke.
