The Complete List of Kodi Keyboard Shortcuts

Kodi Keyboard Commands and Shortcuts

This topic is often asked but rarely addressed.  What are the keyboard commands for Kodi?  When using a regular remote control, we lose a great deal of control over various functions in Kodi that can ony truly be realized by using either a full keyboard or a mini-keyboard remote.  This inormation is always available at the http://kodi.tv wiki but we will put it out here for our users and visitors.

Keyboard Shortcut List

This graphic is a “quick” reference sheet, the full controls are listed further below in this blog post.  This image was grabbed from the kodi.tv forum where the poster actually used this image as a custom background in his skin for easy reference right on his TV screen.  Bloody brilliant if you ask me:
