KeyCombiner improves your GitHub Desktop workflows in several ways. Here are three concrete examples.
Increase your efficiency when working with GitHub Desktop by learning its keyboard shortcuts. KeyCombiner's typing trainer uses flashcard and spaced repetition techniques to facilitate keyboard shortcut learning. You can learn tens or even hundreds of keyboard shortcuts in minimal time.
We are not just saying that; read how How KeyCombiner's creator learned 50 new keyboard shortcuts in 42 minutes.

KeyCombiner Desktop enables you to instantly look up all shortcuts that are in your collections plus those of the currently active application.
This means, whenever you are working in GitHub Desktop, you can press Super+Alt+C on Windows and Linux, or Shift+Cmd+K on macOS and KeyCombiner will show you GitHub Desktop's keyboard shortcuts. This way, you don't need to leave your current context, and can return to work immediately afterward.
If you are interested in how this works in detail, we have written a blog post about it:
An app to show the shortcuts of the current application for Windows, Linux, and macOS.
KeyCombiner's collection tables can be searched, filtered, and sorted in more ways than you can imagine. In one click, you can filter by category or modifier combination, or for any key on the keyboard. Of course, there is also full text search.
We don't stop there though. KeyCombiner's collection visualizer maps all of GitHub Desktop's keyboard shortcuts onto a virtual keyboard. This helps to find relationships between key bindings, or to identify free combinations, in case you like to organize your own key bindings.
By the way, we have a blog post about that, too: An Interactive Virtual Keyboard to Visualize any Collection of Shortcuts
Animation too fast or too small? Please don't bother with this demo and try it out for yourself with KeyCombiner's public collection of GitHub Desktop shortcuts.
KeyCombiner's public GitHub Desktop collection has 36 entries. Select exactly those that you need for your workflow and add them to your personal collections.
KeyCombiner will always show you which combinations of a public collection are already in your collections, so you don't lose track when gradually expanding your knowledge.
All shortcuts in your personal collections will always be available in KeyCombiner Desktop's instant lookup. Next time you are trying to remember a GitHub Desktop shortcut, you don't need to suffer a context switch by searching on the Web.
KeyCombiner's interactive trainer can be used with any of your collections. It comes with a flashcard inspired learning experience. Spaced repetition algorithms maximize learning efficiency. You can try out KeyCombiner's interactive trainer with a random selection of 15 GitHub Desktop shortcuts right here.
If you create an account, you can choose exactly which shortcuts you want to practice. You can combine your GitHub Desktop practice with 70+ other applications for which KeyCombiner has a public collection or define new key combinations from scratch. KeyCombiner will save detailed statistics and use them to speed up your learning progress.
Browsing the official documentation or printing out a list of keyboard shortcuts is great, but it does not scale well when you are searching for a specific entry among hundreds of key bindings.
KeyCombiner's collection tables offer a range of features that you won't find anywhere else.
