When you edit multiple files, you often need to change windows.

You can set up Vim in windows and gvim to switch between windows with the commonly used Ctrl-Tab and Ctrl-Shift-Tab

The mappings

nmap <C-Tab> <C-w>w
nmap <C-S-Tab><C-w>W

They wrap around.

I don't know which way is better, but I couldn't get that way to work. So I use this instead.

:map <C-Tab> :bn<CR>
:map <C-S-Tab> :bp<CR>
