Agile Board Keyboard Shortcuts

YouTrack is a keyboard-centric application and provides enough keyboard support to let you forget about using the mouse in most cases. For almost any operation, whether it's creating, editing or navigating between issues, commenting, changing attributes — YouTrack provides a shortcut.

These shortcuts are mapped to keys on a keyboard with a functional layout for the English language. Keys that differ between US and UK variants are not mapped to any shortcuts. If your keyboard has a visual layout for a different language, you can switch the language preference for your operating system to English and use these shortcuts with the default mapping. Alternatively, an administrator can customize the keyboard shortcuts for your YouTrack server. For more information, see Customize Keyboard Shortcuts.

This page lists the keyboard shortcuts that you can use while working with an agile board. For the complete list of keyboard shortcuts, see Keyboard Shortcuts. You can also download the shortcuts list in PDF format from the YouTrack web site.
