Summary0027987: Suggestion: Recent Windows: Add keyboard navigation of Recent Windows
DescriptionIt would be good if we could quickly navigate through the windows stored in Recent Windows using a couple of keyboard commands.

For example, pressing Alt+RightArrow, would navigate down the list of Recent Windows, then pressing Enter would focus the selected window. Alt+LeftArrow would do the opposite.

This would encourage more usage of Recent Windows, and improve IDE usability.

Updated description to remove 'no need to press enter' suggestion.

While not against this, it would require a "global" set of keys, available everywhere in the IDE that doesn't clash with anything.

What we should probably have, is a way to "pick" the Recent Windows window quickly (which would only require 1 key), and then use cursor keys and enter to select.

So something like "CTRL+SHIFT+R" to set focus to the recent windows dialog, and then allow cursor keys + enter to work.

If you click in the recent windows list, then you can use the arrow keys fine to navigate up/down the list, but whilst Enter/space visually select an entry, they don't actually trigger an open/navigate to the resource.

Wait for keybindings to be done.
