Commands#

Commands are the entry points for triggering actions for the user interface. They are linked to menu entries, keyboard shortcuts, the launcher and the command palette.

A command has an unique id that is used for referencing it or executing it. It could also require input arguments. Those arguments are maybe different in the command palette and the keyboard shortcuts for example. That can explain varying behavior depending on the source of a command trigger.

Command Palette#

All user actions in JupyterLab are processed through a centralized command system. These commands are shared and used throughout JupyterLab (menu bar, context menus, keyboard shortcuts, etc.). The command palette provides a keyboard-driven way to search for and run JupyterLab commands:

The command palette can be accessed from the View menu or using the keyboard shortcut Command/Ctrl Shift C.

The command palette can be displayed in the sidebar by adding 'modal': false to the Settings.

Commands List#

The table below display the list of commands and the associated keyboard shortcuts. The unique identifier is useful if you want to customize the menus, the toolbars or the keyboard shortcuts.

Note

On Mac OS, the Ctrl key should be replaced by Cmd.
