The main menu of the UI has now more extended support for keyboard navigation.

You can open up the menus with the following key combinations:

  • Monitoring: ALT + m
  • Setup: ALT + s
  • Customize: ALT + c

The search field is automatically focussed (as before), you can directly insert your search term. By using TAB you can navigate the search results and confirm your choice with ENTER.

Pressing ESC for the first time clears the current search term. A second ESC closes the open menu.

Utilizing the workflow can make navigating to the desired pages in Checkmk much faster.
