Divi keyboard shortcut keys are one of those features you never knew you needed until you try them out.

Actions in Divi that can usually take 2, 3, or 4 clicks and/or a lot of scrolling of modal windows can be taken with 1 or 2 clicks of the keyboard.

Using these quick access keys on your keyboard to access various options and features within the Divi Visual Builder and Divi Builder may only save you a second or so each time, but if you are building a lot of Divi websites then it all adds up to make for a smoother, faster way of working with Divi.

I created my own Divi shortcut cheat-sheet of the Visual Builder shortcut keys (I rarely use the back-end builder now) which I have handy in case I forget what-hotkey-does-what.

If you have difficulty remembering the shortcut keys too, then you can download a copy below.
