Move between terminal and editor.

This keybinding will allow you to move between the editor and your terminal (back and forth) by just pressing control+ `.

That way you can create a new terminal using control+shift+ `, and then pressing the same combination without the shift key will move your cursor between windows.

    { "key": "ctrl+`", "command": "workbench.action.terminal.focus"},
    { "key": "ctrl+`", "command": "workbench.action.focusActiveEditorGroup", "when": "terminalFocus"}
