DevTools Digest - More power with the new command menu
Read about DevTools' new command menu and its over 60 actions that enable super fast workflows.
Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+P to bring up the Command Menu
The "Jump to File" dialog that appears when you press
Cmd + P (or
Ctrl + P) in the Sources panel isn't terribly well known, but has been around for a while. We've now went much further than that and developed a text-editor-inspired command menu that can drive almost every important action in DevTools.
Cmd + Shift + P (or
Ctrl + Shift + P) anywhere (even when the page is in focus!) to bring up the Command Menu, then type to filter and hit
Enter to trigger the action. A few sample actions you could try:
- Appearance: Switch to Dark Theme
- DevTools: Dock to bottom
- Mobile: Inspect Devices...
- Network: Go offline
The new command menu is a super quick way to navigate and discover new settings and actions across DevTools.
Looking for the good old "Go to member" dialog that was previously also associated with that shortcut? It is still there, just hit
Cmd + Shift + O (or
Ctrl + Shift + O) from now on.
Until next month! Paul Bakaus & the DevTools team
