Use Keyboard Bindings

Use Keyboard Bindings

By default, Chocolatey GUI ships with some keyboard bindings that make navigating sources easier when using the keyboard. In the screenshot below, it is possible to navigate to the chocolatey.licensed feed using CTRL + 3 and then back to the This PC feed using CTRL + 1. It is also possible to navigate to the chocolatey feed using CTRL + 2.

Use Keyboard Bindings

Disabling this feature will stop these navigations from being possible using these keyboard shortcuts, but they can still be navigated to using the mouse in the normal way.

📝 NOTE

Keyboard bindings are only supported for the first 9 sources. Trying to press CTRL + 1 + 0 for navigating to a tenth source will not work.
