I am currious if there is a shortcut for runing the selected cell in IPython notebook such as alt+F5 or ctrl+f5 or something simmiliar that is present in Visual Studio (I don't recall exactly now ) , cause I found it annoing to go with the mouse on the run button every time I need to run a cell?

IPython notebook Keyboard shortcuts:

  • Shift-Enter: run cell
  • Ctrl-Enter: run cell in-place
  • Alt-Enter: run cell, insert below
  • Ctrl-m: This is the prefix for all other shortcuts, which consist of Ctrl-m followed by a single letter or character. For example, if you type Ctrl-m h (that is, the sole letter h after Ctrl-m), IPython will show you all the available keyboard shortcuts. enter image description here
