Is there a way in Gnome3 on CentOS7 to list the actual keyboard shortcuts for things like the activities view? I can find lots of web pages that tell me what they should be, but I'd like to know for sure.

For instance, a "Gnome Help" site says that the shortcut for the activities view is "Alt-F1", but that just brings up the Application menu. I want a shorter sequence to bring this up. That same page also refers to a "Super" key, but I don't have that key on this HP "Z Book".

After I get a list of these shortcuts, how can I change them?


You can see all shortcuts under "Keyboard" in the "Settings" and add custom ones.

And you can change the key for the applications menu in the Gnome Tweak Tool.

  • Got it. Answers that question. That now results in a new question, which I'll post separately, but no matter what key binding I set for the "activities overview", it only shows the applications menu. – David M. Karr Jul 16 '15 at 16:09
  • I added the hint to the tweak tool. Maybe this helps. – Jodka Lemon Jul 17 '15 at 12:51
