In this chapter you will learn how to use the keyboard effectively, because most operations can be done more quickly by keyboard than with the mouse. It will take some time to learn the Key-Bindings, but mastering them saves you a lot of time. Please note that Krusader can use Key-binding Profiles to swap easily to other Key-binding setups, e.g. of other commanders, or you can create your own key-bindings.
After starting Krusader, the keyboard action can
begin. Use Ctrl+L to jump to the
Location Toolbar where you can type the
desired directory. After Ctrl+Down arrow
you are in the
Terminal emulator and you can type any command you
desire. Use Ctrl+Up arrow
to jump back to the active panel. If
you want to jump to a file or directory that starts with
then simply press f on the keyboard to use the
search bar. Use the Enter key to execute
the file or to open a directory that has the focus. Be sure to
remember the Function Keys - F3 to View, F4 to Edit,
F5 to Copy, Alt+Shift+U to Unpack, etc.
