Video game main menu tab navigation mapping for PC



  • The tab navigation menu is very common for console video games. It is usually mapped on LB/RB buttons (Xbox). Tab navigation in Fortnite

    I wonder what would be the most intuitive mapping for PC keyboard?

    In Windows, this behaviour is mapped on Ctrl+Tab (forward) and Ctrl+Shift+Tab (backwards), but for the game that's too many keys. I am looking for a single key alternative.



  • Consider Q and E. These are keys most PC gamers will easily associate with "left" and "right" since they are used for equipment as well as leaning in some first- and third-person games. E might be a tough choice if it is leveraged elsewhere in the game, especially if it's used within the menu.
