Add hotkeys to tools or menu items to allow quick access.
Create or edit a hot key for a tool or menu
- Choose Preferences > Interface > Hotkeys/Menu Editor.
- Click in the editable field next to the tool or menu item name.
- Type a letter (for a single key hotkey), a function key (for example F4), or a control key string (a combination of the words Alt, Shift, and/or Ctrl followed by a letter) and press (Windows) or (Mac). Do not use F1.
If you type a single letter, you can only use that hotkey when single key hotkeys are on (see Turn single key hotkeys on or off).

However, you can map the rest of the function keys. Do not change any of the modify hotkeys. A modify key is a hotkey that involves a mouse click-drag-up in conjunction with pressing a key (for example, modifying the radius, opacity, or size of a brush).
