Welcome Screen: list of keyboard shortcuts

Post by ssspace » Tue May 01, 2018 12:37 pm

Some people love keyboard shortcuts, as you are improving the Welcome Screen (Mint's blog post), consider this:

- Create a button, "Keyboard Shortcuts"

- List all the shortcuts(or the main ones) followed by a very short description of what each one does

Open the keyboard settings -> keyboard shortcuts (this is for Cinnamon). You can see them and you can change them if needed.

That area is not the best(it could be improved), specially for new users.

Ubuntu Budgie has something similar to this idea, their Welcome Screen has a list of the shortcuts, it helps a lot, this will be a great addition to Linux Mint.

Everything can be improved. But my advice does work already today.

If any dev see this, check when you have some time:

Ubuntu Budgie Welcome Screen

The keyboard shortcuts are inside a menu when you click on the "Getting Started" button... you can see it on this video, at minute 1:00

It's an interesting idea, I think it would help new users that just installed Linux Mint.
