Key-Bindings

Most of the key-bindings (shortcuts) are configurable in the SettingsConfigure Shortcuts menu, if you like to use other key-bindings then the default ones. You can even configure more actions to a Key-Binding (for the actions that do not have a key-binding set by default). Please note that some key-bindings are not Krusader key-bindings (e.g. KDE key-bindings). The key-bindings that Krusader uses by default are listed below.
