Keyboard shortcuts

Bitbucket Cloud comes with keyboard shortcuts you can use to quickly access pages and features. Most shortcuts are a combination of keys – you press one key and then the next in sequence. Some shortcuts are a single key press to put your cursor in the search field.

To view a list of keyboard shortcuts for your current page: Press Shift ? (question mark) on your keyboard.

To disable or enable keyboard shortcuts: Go to avatar > Bitbucket settings. In the Preferences section of your Bitbucket Settings page, you can deselect or select the Enable keyboard shortcuts option.

The following table includes the keyboard shortcuts available in Bitbucket. To get a better idea of what shortcuts are available for each page, press the ? key in Bitbucket.

When you see a shortcut with a capital letter, you must first enter the CAPS LOCK to use that shortcut. SHIFT and the letter won't work.

If you see a missing shortcut or one that's inconsistent with what you see in Bitbucket, let us know from the Provide feedback about this article link at the bottom of this page.
