Use this page to create, edit, and remove custom keymaps for specific environments, and change shortcuts associated with actions.

Note that default keymaps are not editable. To re-configure shortcut associations, create a child keymap based on the desired default one and edit it as required.

On the other hand, as soon as you try to change a keyboard shortcut associated with an action in one of the default keymaps, a copy of the corresponding keymap is automatically created.
