Although I’ve created a couple of cheat sheets for remembering keyboard shortcuts, there are other ways to remind yourself which key does what.

A lot of Google products have a key sequence that will show you the keyboard shortcuts for the current product:

ProductShow Keyboard
Gmail*Shift – /
ChromebookControl – Alt – ?
Google Docs/Sheets/SlidesControl – /
(Command – / on macOS)
Microsoft Word (show Keytips)F10

A lot of programs do not have a way to easily show keyboard shortcuts, which is a shame. Apple is addressing the issue of discoverability with the Touchbar in the new MacBook Pros, we’ll have to see how well that works out.
