IntelliJ 4.0 : how to go from file to file?

so... I'm addicted to Alt+tab to go from screen to screen. There's gotta be a similar way in IntelliJ 4.0 to go from one file to the next without physically clicking each tab on the top to from from "a.java" to "b.java" anyone know the shortcut? I tried Ctrl+tab like in Opera, but no such luck

Alt-Right and Alt-Left will navigate from tab to tab.

Another option is to go to File->Settings->IDE->Plugins and download a plugin called TabSwitch. It basically gives you the exactly funtionality you are looking for mapped to Alt-A and Alt-Shift-A. Like you I abuse Alt-tab and I find this plugin to be pretty neat.

nice thanks -- I'll use the alt+left / alt+right for a bit -- maybe I'll download the plugin later.
I'm really diggin this IntelliJ 4.0 -- last I had was 2.6 -- lots of enhancements.
