Modifying Keyboard Shortcuts

To modify an existing shortcut, locate the shortcut by browsing to its category or using the search box, then click on the three dots next to it and select Remove to remove the existing keybinding.

Removing an existing shortcut

Next, click the three dots again and select Add shortcut (or Add another shortcut if you're adding more than one keybinding for the same action.) This will open a window where you can enter your new keybinding.

New shortcut entry

After entering your desired key combination, click Set. If the key combination is already bound to another shortcut, you will be given the option to replace the old shortcut or cancel.

Adding Keyboard Shortcuts

Select the Custom Shortcuts category at the bottom of the Keyboard Shortcuts list.

Custom Shortcuts category

Click the Add Shortcut button.

Custom Shortcuts list

Enter a name for the shortcut, the application or command to launch, and the key combination, then click Add.

Adding a custom shortcut

Note: In order to execute a shell script, use its absolute path instead of its relative path. For example: sh /home/username/Documents/script.sh instead of sh ~/Documents/script.sh.
