How to choose keyboard shortcuts for web applications

One-line takeaways

  • Don’t override native browser (or OS) shortcuts.
  • Support standard shortcuts that don’t contradict the previous rule, and use one or two letter shortcuts for other actions.
  • Always have a consistent system.
  • Pay maximum attention to discoverability.
