If you’re a multi-tasker like me, you want to be productive and get tasks done quickly and efficiently. The best thing is that WordPress also provides key shortcuts in the WordPress Block Editor that can be both useful and necessary.

You may be familiar with many of these WordPress Editor key shortcuts as they also apply to Windows and Microsoft Word. These key shortcuts work with both the WordPress Gutenberg Block Editor and the Classic Editor.

WordPress Key Basic Shortcuts:

  • CTRL + C = Copy
  • CTRL + V = Paste
  • CTRL + B = Bold
  • CTRL + I = Italic
  • CTRL + X = Cut
  • CTRL + A = Select all
  • CTRL + Z = Undo
  • CTRL + S = Save changes
  • CTRL + P = Print
  • CTRL + U = Underline the selected text
  • CTRL + K = Convert the selected text into a link
  • SHIFT + LEFT/RIGHT = Select one letter to the right/ left
  • SHIFT + HOME = Select all the text until the beginning of the current line
  • SHIFT + END = Select all the text until the end of the current line

Gutenberg Key Shortcuts for Windows users:

  • Enter = Add a new block; Can also be combined with / to quickly insert multiple blocks
  • CTRL + SHIFT + D = Duplicate the selected bloc’s
  • ALT + SHIFT + Z = Remove the selected blocks
  • ALT + SHIFT + D = Strike through
  • ALT + SHIFT + Q = Insert block quote
  • ALT + SHIFT + X = Add/remove code tag
  • CTRL + ALT + T = Insert a new block before the selected blocks
  • CTRL + ALT + Y = Insert a new block after the selected blocks
  • / = change the block type after adding a paragraph
  • ESC = Exit selection
  • CTRL + SHIFT + Z = Redo your last undo
  • CTRL + SHIFT + , = Show or hide the settings bar
  • ALT + SHIFT + O = Open the block navigation menu
  • ALT + SHIFT + M = Insert Image
  • ALT + SHIFT + N = Navigate to the next part of the editor
  • ALT + SHIFT + P = Navigate to the previous part of the editor
  • ALT + F10 = Navigate to the nearest toolbar

Although these shortcuts can be intimidating at the beginning, you’ll get used to them in time and speed up the article or page writing process. At the end of the day, productivity doesn’t appear by magic, you can’t expect great results without preparing for them.

  1. Mom always said practice makes perfect! Same idea you’re driving at here with all of this good INFO! It’s very good and adds up to work but I do believe if one puts the work into something they will get the desired result, and is much better for sure than going off half-cocked or wishy-washy; as in the Bible it says not to be “lukewarm” too! Besides all that at the end of the day if I work hard to achieve something when I do achieve some success and obtain something good as a result of that accomplishment, I feel very good inside knowing I did what it takes, and wasn’t handed something the easy way; which tends to weaken or even cripple a person inside, disrupting their own will or inspiration, motivation!
