This is a list of keyboard shortcuts used in the game. Their function can change depending on what window you have open. These are based on the latest source, hence they might not work on older versions of OpenTTD. See also the most used shortcuts and undocumented key combinations.
Some parts of the key handling in OpenTTD assumes a US Qwerty layout. If a hotkey doesn't work as documented, look on an image of the US keyboard to figure out where the key with the mentioned symbol is located on your keyboard. If that still doesn't work, you can customize the hotkey to use a different key sequence by editing
hotkeys.cfg (you will still need to mind that OpenTTD assumes a US Qwerty layout and may need to write a different symbol in
hotkeys.cfg than what the key produces in other programs on your computer).
* Note: This will take a few seconds and will seem to "freeze" OpenTTD. Also note that these screenshots are HUGE, 16352x8192 pixels on a default sized map and each screenshot takes up around 130 MB as BMP, 75 MB as PCX, and 15 MB as PNG, so watch your free space carefully. On very large maps, a full-map screenshot can be upwards of multiple gigabytes in size even in fully-compressed PNG format. This hotkey caused a lot of different problems related to accidental pressing of the keys and was removed in the latest versions. A warning was soon added for such large screenshots. If you want to use this feature, you need to edit your hotkeys.cfg and bind it there.
