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. From your Account settings, 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.
