Keyboard shortcuts allow you to navigate around your community and perform commands by using simple keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts do not require complex combinations - many are as simple as a single keypress!
By typing ' ? ' or clicking the 'Shortcuts' option in the user toolbar, a dialog will pop up listing various available shortcuts. These shortcuts do not require use of access keys. For example, it tells you that '/' (a forward slash) will move your cursor to the search box.
An actions explorer, accessed by pressing ' . ' (a period/full stop), enables access to even more pages. You can use this to discover more shortcuts or as a method of quick access by simply clicking the search result.
For example, typing Exp will narrow the list to Actions explorer, Expand templates, and Export pages, and provides a clickable result that will take you straight to Insights.
This type of shortcut is only active for logged in users. They are also not active when your cursor is in an edit area, so they won't interfere with article editing.
Alternatively, you can use the following 'classic' shortcuts. These shortcuts use a combination of a letter and the access key used in your browser - usually Ctrl, Alt or Alt+Shift.
|C||Content page associated with the current page|
|N||User talk page|
|Access key +||Associated action/destination|
|[||Open source dialog|
Note: a full list of VisualEditor keyboard shortcuts can be found under the settings menu.
|Alt+ShifT+I||Toggles minor edit checkbox|
Disabling the shortcuts
At the current state of the platform, there is no simple way on the user side to disable the shortcuts.
