In what file are the keyboard shortcuts saved in Linux Mint Cinnamon 18 ?
I want to backup the shortcuts so if I know the file where the shortcuts are saved, I can simply create a symlink to the shortcut file after reinstalling the OS.

You can utilize the following to export your keyboard shortcuts to a file:
$ dconf dump /org/cinnamon/desktop/keybindings/ > dconf-settings.conf
This requires the
dconf-cli package to be installed. Then, to import the file after making any desired keybinding changes:
$ dconf load /org/cinnamon/desktop/keybindings/ < dconf-settings.conf
There are several binary files. Check the
dconf-overview.xml, in the docs directory, inside this zipped file.
