Working with tmux
The main trick for using tmux, is the prefix key for its all commands.
What is the prefix key?
the prefix is C-b by default.
Hah? what does that mean?
the C- means press and hold the
the b means press the b key
now it makes sense, you need to hold the Ctrl key and then press the b button. this is just the prefix, after that you could press different shortcuts. here is a simple shortcut for creating a new window in current session.
do you get that? press and hold the Ctrl key and then press b, after that release the Ctrl key and immediately press the c key. Now you should see two windows in your status bar like below.
Now it’s time to move on and learn tricky shortcuts.
