Keyboard shortcuts

You can use keyboard shortcuts to move around your Shopify admin more quickly.

Basic keyboard shortcuts

Some keyboard shortcuts work anywhere on your computer.

Copy

When you copy, your computer remembers information (text or files) so that you can place it somewhere else, move it, or duplicate it.

To copy, select text or a file and press ctrl + C on a PC or command + C on a Mac.

Paste

When you paste, your computer reproduces the information (text or files) that you previously copied. The text or files will be placed in the window or text box where you are working.

To paste, press ctrl + V on a PC or command + V on a Mac.

Find

In many applications, you can use the find command to search for specific text. This command is available in most web browsers and word processors.

To find, press ctrl + F on a PC or command + F on a Mac.

Using admin keyboard shortcuts

You can use keyboard shortcuts in your Shopify admin to quickly move between pages or add items such as products, pages, and discounts.

Most keyboard shortcuts require you to press multiple keys. To make sure the keyboard shortcuts work properly:

  • The keys for the shortcut must be pressed in the order they appear in the list from left to right. For example, if you want to add a product (shortcut A P), typing P A will not work.

  • Each key must be pressed within 1 second of the key before it.
