Is there a list of all the keyboard short cuts in the SW Help manual if anyone knows ?
With a Solidworks file open, right-click on a blank part at the top of your screen (red star below).
That will bring up the list shown below. Click on "Customize..."
That will open the "Customize" window. The "Toolbars" tab will be active. Click on the "Keyboard" tab. The possible keyboard shortcuts will be grouped by Category so there will be blank spaces as shown below. Click on the gray "Shortcut(s)" box re-organize the list so all keyboard shortcuts will be listed at the top. You'll probably need to click on it twice. Then move the slider bar at right up and down to see the whole list.
You can even print the list (green arrow) or copy it (red arrow) to paste into excel.

He asked for the list of keyboard shortcuts. He didn't ask about the S-key. I personally use very few keyboard shortcuts since I prefer mouse gestures.
I was watching a video where the narrator was using some keyboard short cuts to either delete or trim some entities, but he was not specifying what key combination is was using. So I'm trying to decipher his code.
I too also use the mouse gesture quite often.
You can set your own keyboard shortcut to trim entities. I set mine to the "x" key, because "ctrl+x" in standard windows is cut. A little trick I picked up from Kameron Smith

There may not be a default shortcut for those operations, but you can assign your own if you want. It's unfortunate that people post videos with customized settings since it can confuse people trying to learn from them.
While your at it, I highly recommend you start adding tools that you use often to the shortcut bars. You can pull these menus up really quickly while you are working by pressing the "S" key:
I use the S key on a regular basis also. Thanks Matt.
And before printing, you want to set the Show pull down to only show those with keyboard shortcuts. This is also useful as for just viewing all commands with shortcuts assigned without printing instead of sorting the list as Glenn Schroeder mentioned. Then you can use the other columns for sorting JUST the commands with shortcuts.
i don't think it is in the help - since the list is often customized - here is how to print out the list for your existing keyboard shortcuts:
F. Leatin, like Tyler Williams mentioned above, I like to set a few custom keyboard shortcuts to imitate standard Windows functions:
Ctrl+C is copy, which I equate to Convert Entities (hotkey C).
Ctrl+X is cut, which I equate to Trim Entities (hotkey X).
Ctrl+V is paste, which I equate to Extend Entities (hotkey V).
If you happened to catch this years SLUGME presentation (on Nov 4th), you might have seen me using these. I did, however, make sure to explain how I did it and I mentioned which key I was pressing each time I used it.

I'm afraid I missed it. I had planned to attend, but the weather was bad and I didn't want to make the drive to Austin. That stuff happens when your hair gets some gray in it.
Weather in Texas!? What sorcery is this!?
Sorry!... I didn't mean to hijack the thread. (If you missed SLUGME, the videos will be publicly available on the 3DExperience Platform after #3DXW20. Until then, only UG leaders can access them, for use at meetings)
Dan, is there a way I can Save the Keyboard shortcuts commands to my task bar ?
Glenn Schroeder and Kameron Smith, glenn you would have been disappointed because I didn't show Kam's presentation because he started before our CTSUG meeting started. I'm glad Kam chimed in because the SLUGME videos will be up sometime for everyone to see.
Also sorry to hijack...
I don't believe there is, but it's not difficult to get to the customize options dialogue, just two mouse clicks, and one more to get to keyboard shortcuts, like Glenn Schroeder showed above.
You mean to save a button that would give you the ability to jump into the Keyboard shortcuts area?
No, but its pretty easy to get to.....
I was referring to the Win task bar at the bottom of the screen. But I think I can make that happen.
"S" key is one shortcut to rule them all! https://grabcad.com/library/lord-of-the-rings-one-ring-1
OK, you just lost me.
Do you mean that want a PDF (or an excel) file of the shortcut commands that you have assigned (or were already assigned by Solidworks) so that you can access it from your task bar?
If so......you can't assign (pin) direct shortcuts to the task bar (or the start menu). But you can put shortcuts to those things in your desktop.
and those shortcuts can be pinned to the windows task bar (windows 10)
You can pin a PROGRAM (like Acrobat Reader) to your task bar, but I don't think that you can pin a specific PDF file to your task bar. Can you? (you can.....see reply below)
OK, I stand corrected....you can. It is just buried under whatever program you want to open it with.
You just have to drag the specific file onto the task bar.

Like Glenn I seldom use the keyboard short cuts. A combination of forgetfulness and being left handed and using a 3DConnexions puck so my hands are never in the right place. So I did the "S" key one better. It is straight down on all of my mouse gestures!
