Prevent Mac terminal from changing tabs when reopened

by Ajay Annamareddy   Last Updated May 16, 2019 04:12 AM

Whenever I open the terminal app after it was minimized, it often changes tab and go back to a particular tab (which tab in particular is not very important). Can someone suggest a workaround for this problem?

Currently on Mojave OSX (10.14.4) and had this problem with High Sierra too previously.

How about instead of minimising by pressing minimise button, using ⌘ H (COMMAND H) instead? Then it will not shift to the oldest tab.

Then, use ⌘ ⇥ (COMMAND TAB) to navigate the terminal.
