Appendix C. Shortcut Keys

Keyboard shortcuts are a great way to speed up your workflow and to work more ergonomically (with less mousing). It's worth learning the shortcuts for any program you regularly use. In this section, you will find WordPress and Flash keyboard shortcuts. We also point you to URLs to learn keyboard shortcuts for Windows, Macintosh, and Firefox.

WordPress has built in shortcuts for the Visual Editor, the HTML Editor, and for Comment Moderation.


Please note that keyboard shortcuts work differently depending on your operating system and browser. We suggest using Firefox for maximum compatibility. Most (but not all) of the following shortcuts are available in Internet Explorer.

If you are using Firefox, use Alt + Shift + key.

If you are using Internet Explorer, you may use Alt + key (Shift is never needed when using the HTML Editor, but sometimes needed in the Visual Editor).

If you are using a PC, use the Ctrl key.

If you are using a Mac, use the Cmd (Apple) key instead of the Ctrl key.

WordPress Visual Editor keyboard shortcuts

In the Visual Editor, you have two ways to style your content. The first way is to select a bit of text and press the keyboard shortcut to style your selection. The other way is to start the tag by doing the keystroke, then typing your content, then keystroke again to specify the end tag.
