Move around the startup screen quickly

September 10, 2015

In the spacemacs startup screen there are a few useful key bindings:

  • tab (widget-forward) - jump to next widget
  • backtab (widget-backward) - jump to previous widget
  • r - jump to first widget under Recent files
  • m - jump to first widget under Bookmarks
  • p - jump to first widget under Projects

The last three are extremely helpful. So for example, if you want to open the second file in Recent files list you type r <tab> <return>.
