Shift has its own list of custom shortcuts. These keyboard shortcuts are built right into Shift. They cannot be customized or disabled. You can find the full list of keyboard shortcuts by going to Options (lower left) > Settings > Shortcuts or by pressing Cmd / or Ctrl / on your keyboard.


Additionally, Shift should honor most shortcuts for individual apps, emails, and websites. To access app-specific keyboard shortcuts, click on the app in your sidebar and then click anywhere on the page to bring the app into focus. Then, use the keyboard's desired shortcut that's specific to that app, email, or website.



If you’re using a non-English keyboard you may need to use a different keyboard shortcut for the App Switcher below:

Mac : Cmd ` or Cmd ~ or Cmd <

Windows : Ctrl ` or Ctrl ~ or Ctrl <
