Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Editing/New keyboard shortcuts

New keyboard shortcuts

  • Problem: There are no keyboard shortcuts available for the "User contributions" and "Log out" links. Keyboard shortcuts for working with the various Watchlist filters and view settings in particular would be welcome. Other missing features that would be great are keyboard shortcuts to quickly put in focus the version-selecting bullets on "Revision history" pages, and shortcuts to more readily navigate those (show a different number of revisions per page, jump to a list of earlier revisions, etc.). Another one that comes to mind is a keyboard shortcut to facilitate access to non-English versions of an article or WP page. I'm sure there are other similar features that users would appreciate.
  • Who would benefit: People who are accustomed to using keyboard shortcuts and anyone looking to save some time when editing.
  • Proposed solution: Create such keyboard shortcuts and/or functionalities.

  • I would vote for this if there were a clear list of the keyboard shortcuts and the proposed key mappings. --Hb2007 (talk) 15:42, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Toccata quarta - does w:en:Wikipedia:AutoHotkey help? - Cabayi (talk) 20:58, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Cabayi: I'm not familiar with that tool. It looks interesting but also a bit tricky at first. My proposal is for "preset" keyboard shortcuts, like the ones we are already have for accessing "Special pages" or the Watchlist, the "Preview" function, etc. Toccata quarta (talk) 07:53, 10 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
