Keyboard usability is usually high on the priority list for any dev tool. For most developers, it’s a more efficient input method, requiring minimum movement and effort compared to a mouse or any other pointing device. It also saves time, and for repetitive / well-frequented tasks, this can bring about a huge improvement in speed over the long run.
When we approached assigning keyboard shortcuts in Postman, we broadly categorised them into three buckets based on their function: navigation, manipulation, and global. Navigational shortcuts help you move around the interface, manipulation shortcuts allow you to manipulate the current selection, and global shortcuts can be accessed from anywhere.
Different operating systems will have different shortcuts. You can always view a complete list of your operating system’s shortcuts by navigating t These are just a few shortcuts to get you started, and we would love feedback on additional shortcuts we can introduce to improve your workflows! We know that a standard set of shortcuts can never meet everyone’s expectations, and we’re working on allowing users to add their own custom key bindings to these shortcuts. Stay tuned for more!
