My top 10 PHPstorm shortcuts

Jun 09, 2023


PHPstorm has always been my favorite IDE and I have been using it for more than 5 years now. I have tried other IDEs like VSCode, Sublime, Atom, etc. but I always come back to PHPstorm. It has a lot of features and shortcuts that make my life easier. I am going to share my top 10 most used shortcuts and habits that I use in PHPstorm.

1. Search Everywhere

By pressing Shift twice, you can search for anything in PHPstorm. You can search for files, classes, methods, actions, etc. It is the most used shortcut for me. I use it to open files, search for classes, methods, etc. It is a very powerful feature and I use it all the time.

2. Search for files

You can search for files by pressing Shift + Command + O on Mac and Shift + Ctrl + N on Windows. It is a very useful shortcut and I use it all the time to open files.
