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 key in sequence. 

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

  • To disable or enable keyboard shortcuts: Click your profile avatar > click Personal settings. Check or uncheck the Shortcuts checkbox to enable or disable keyboard shortcuts.

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.
