SSMS Keyboard Shortcuts In Azure Data Studio

Bob Pusateri reduces a bit of the mental burden of shifting to Azure Data Studio:

One thing about Azure Data Studio I’m not too keen about, though, is that many of the keyboard shortcuts are different. One keyboard shortcut that’s particularly helpful to me is using Ctrl + E to execute queries. I realize that F5 is the most common key to execute a query, however on most laptop keyboards you now need to hold an additional key to make the function keys behave like function keys. For this reason, Ctrl+ E is a wonderful and quick alternative, but it doesn’t work in Azure Data Studio. Or didn’t, until now.
Fortunately, Azure Data Studio is designed to be expanded upon with extensions from both Microsoft and the community. In the case of keyboard shortcuts, a particularly helpful one is called SSMS Keymap, which ports many popular SSMS keyboard shortcuts into Azure Data Studio. With this extension,  Ctrl + E is once again an option, and I no longer have to click “Execute” with a mouse, or fumble to find my laptop’s F5 equivalent.

Click through for the demo and grab that extension.
