Note: Before focusing on WordPress, most of my daily writings were posted in Confluence. I love the hot keys of Confluence, which are really time and energy saver. About a year ago, I wrote some simple client code to mirror the Confluence’s actions. But it was too simple, almost ugly. Worse, it cannot run properly on Windows. When I copy some texts, the program will also activate the new post page.
These two WordPress plugins may help me to improve my code.
Admin Keys provide intuitive(obtained by using your feelings rather than by considering the facts) WordPress admin keyboard shortcuts for accessibility and efficiency.

Compatible with your version of WordPres
Use the WordPress admin with keyboard shortcuts instead of relying on your mouse for everything. The plugin utilizes(to make use of something, or find a practical or effective use for something) Mousetrap for handling key bindings. The shortcuts included cover basic WordPress admin navigation and actions.
WP Hotkeys provides time-saving keyboard shortcuts to help you quickly navigate the WordPress dashboard.

Untested with your version of WordPress
WP Hotkeys helps you navigate your dashboard as quickly as possible with fully customizable keyboard shortcuts. After installing WP Hotkeys, you will see the default hotkey hints display in brackets next to each standard menu item in the admin. Typing a hotkey will access the associated top-level admin menu item (e.g. Pages), and will display any submenu items and activate their associated hotkeys (e.g. All Pages, Add New). At any point you can use the arrow keys to navigate between menu items (left/right will enter/exit submenus), and the enter key to navigate to the active (underlined) menu item.
WP Hotkeys settings can be found at Settings > WP Hotkeys.
- Works right out of the box with built-in default hotkeys for each standard dashboard menu item.
- Hotkey hints next to each menu item help you remember your shortcuts (can be toggled on/off).
- Fully customizable – define your own hotkeys.
- Lightweight – less than 4kb minified jQuery.
- Built-in warning to let you know if you have duplicate hotkeys.
