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  key
       combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN (with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
