There is no shortcut key assigned to opening a new local shell. We will consider adding the feature in the future versions.

Thank you for your comment.

I agree with the OP. I hope this feature is added sometime soon. I'm impressed with Xshell, but the single place where it really bothers me is when I want to open a new tab / session (not a new window). I have to move my hand from my keyboard to my mouse. I'd hope it is something mappable or at least uses a common key-binding (ctrl-shift-T (or N)). Otherwise - great product.

This feature has been added in the Xshell 3.0 Build 0278 (05/31/10 release).

ADD: New shortcut keys (Alt + Shift + N for new tab, Ctrl + Alt + N for new Window)

Sorry about the delay in testing. I saw the post today.

I upgraded to the latest version and the shortcut keys don't appear to work. As I test I renamed the profile directory (C:/Users/$username/AppData/Roaming/NetSarang to NetSarang.old) and restarted. The shortcuts still didn't work. Thank you for being so very responsive to the feature request and again I apologize for not testing until today. I'm excited to have this working.

I am sorry about the confusion.

The shortcut key for new tab is Alt + Shift + N, and for new window, it is Ctrl + Alt + N.
