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.
