Set a preference to use shortcuts

If you’re like me, the more shortcuts the better. That way, you don’t have to take your eyes off your document to go looking for tools. Of course, the ones that need to have multiple keys pressed at the same time, and require almost monkey-like agility aren’t for everyone, but there are so many basic shortcuts that can shave time off your work.

Before you can use the single-stroke shortcuts (called single-key accelerators), you need to set a preference. Choose Acrobat DC > Preferences > General (Mac) or Edit > Preferences > General (Windows) and check the option at the top of the list. Click OK.

Be sure to check out the latest offerings from If you’re signed up for their email with topical links every month, you’ll have recently received the email, including a downloadable list of Acrobat shortcuts. Or, you can download the shortcut file from this Dropbox location.
