Android Studio Keyboard Shortcuts

Learning your IDE can make your life easier. Nuff said.

Yeah, it is a hassle, in the beginning learning something new always is, but if you take the time you will never go back.

Once you go keyboard, you’ll never go back.

These are some keyboard shortcuts that I use, the list is obviously not complete and I do encourage further reading on the topic.

A simple description together with the shortcut is enough if you try them yourself. So try them yourself and see what happens.
