Alright, let’s say you initially have 1 tab tab group open, then you will have to press
ctrl + 2, after that you would be pressing
ctrl + 3 for a new tab group, and so on.
These shortcuts remain the same when you want to switch between tab groups. Let’s say you are working on the third tab group, and you need to switch to the first tab group. All you need to do is press
ctrl + 1, and so on.

Now since we are talking about tab groups, you should also know how to shift a particular tab in the left or right tab group.
Shift to right tab group —
ctrl + alt + right arrow key
Shift to left tab group —
ctrl + alt + left arrow key
Every command in VS Code can also be executed via Command Palette with
Ctrl + Shift + P and a search query. But knowing the direct shortcut might be faster.
These were some keyboard shortcuts that might be helpful to you in your day to day work. In case you feel that I missed any important shortcut, let me know by writing it in comments.
Now that you are armed with the basics, go ahead and give it a try. Once you get the hang of this method, you will wonder how you survived without it. You may even blow the minds of some of your co-workers!
