Configure custom keymaps

You can choose from a number of preset keymaps or modify a preset keymap to create a new custom keymap in the keymap settings for Android Studio.

To open the keymap settings, choose File > Settings (on Mac, Android Studio > Preferences) and navigate to the Keymap pane.

Figure 1. The Android Studio keymap settings window.

  1. Keymaps dropdown: Select the desired keymap from this menu to switch between preset keymaps.
  2. Actions list: Right click on an action to modify it. You can add additional keyboard shortcuts for the action, add mouse shortcuts to associate an action with a mouse click, or remove current shortcuts. If you are using a preset keymap, modifying an action’s shortcuts will automatically create a copy of the keymap and add your modifications to the copy.
  3. Copy button: Select a keymap from the dropdown menu to use as a starting point, and click Copy to create a new custom keymap. You can modify the keymap name and shortcuts.
  4. Reset button: Select a keymap from the dropdown menu and click Reset to revert it to its original configuration.
  5. Search box: Type here to search for a keyboard shortcut by the action name.
  6. Search by Shortcut: Click Find Actions by Shortcut and type a shortcut to search for actions by shortcut.
