What are the shortcuts for switching between non-adjacent open files in the MATLAB editor

Running in MS Windows I sort of expect Ctrl-Tab to switch active tabs/files in the editor. This happens in other Windows applications that I use.
I read here http://www.mathworks.com/help/techdoc/rn/f3-998197.html that Ctrl+Tab now moves you to the next open tool or group of tools tabbed together, which it does. However my editor is undocked and within it Ctrl+Tab does precisely nothing. Meanwhile, although I can Ctrl+PageUp or down through the open editor tabs, this takes them strictly in sequence. What I miss about the Ctrl+Tab is the ability to easily toggle directly between two files you're editing, without re-arranging your tabs every time or having to remember whether it's up or down.

The window menu list all open files. so you can toggle between any file you want without remembering the sequence . alt+W and then the letter denoting the position of the m file. Remember the list also contains variables opened in variable editor, though the two are separated by a line.
