Changing the Prefix key of Tmux(Terminal Multiplexer)

Edit the file tmux.conf If it is a new Installation you will not have this file so create a new file in home directory by firing the below command

vi ~/.tmux.conf

Now enter the three lines for changing the default Ctrl-b to ` symbol as prefix key

unbind C-b

set-option -g prefix ‘`’

bind-key ‘`’ send-prefix

For this change to happen for all users write the config file to /etc folder so resulting your tmux file will be in /etc/tmux.conf
