CHVT(1) General Commands Manual CHVT(1)
chvt - change foreground virtual terminal
chvt [option...] N
The command chvt N makes /dev/ttyN the foreground terminal. (The corresponding screen is created if it did not exist yet. To get rid of unused VTs, use deallocvt(1).) The key combination (Ctrl-)LeftAlt-FN (with N in the range 1-12) usually has a similar effect.
-V, --version print program version and exit. -h, --help show this text and exit.
