This is a list of the default key bindings of the standard game. Please note that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One bindings have not been included as of yet for either the Enhanced Edition or the original port! (the Enhanced Edition pause menu does have a list of controls)

Modifier key

Because KSP can run on different operating systems the modifier key (Mod) differs between them. In the table below, the default Mod key is mapped to the following keys (to use a different key, edit the entry in the "MODIFIER_KEY" section of the settings.cfg file):

  • Windows: Alt (e. g. Alt+L)
  • Mac OS: Option (e. g. Opt+L)
  • Linux: KSP 1.1+: Right-Shift (e. g. Right-Shift+L) Don't confuse this with Left-Shift, which will fire your engines! KSP 1.0.5 and earlier uses a different key, which can cause issues in some window managers when playing in windowed mode. [1]

As an example, Mod+L locks the current stage. The key combinations in brackets show an example of the respective operating system's key combination: just swap Mod with the operating system's designated modifier.

Some keyboards also require to press a Fn key to access some special keys like F5. For example, Macs and some Linux devices such as ThinkPad, require Fn+F5.

It is advisable to shutdown your engines if you don't plan on activating them, such as before resource transfers, or if maneuvers have been completed. This will prevent accidental engine activation from a mistyped key. You can disable engines via control groups, or by right clicking on the engine to manually shut it down or activate it. This can be handy for contracts that require an engine to be tested through staging, but you don't want to discard the usable stage before it: Kill thrust with X, move the engine to be tested to the next stage, then activate the engine through staging. After activation, manually shut down the it tested engine (you'll need to manually re-enable/activate it later). Now you've completed your contract, and haven't wasted any useful stages. Using this, in combination with lock staging Mod+L, will help avoid mishaps due to operator error.

  • Linux versions 1.0.5 and earlier used the Alt as the modifier key. In XFCE/Xubuntu, the Alt key can be used to change the window size and position. This is a ill-conceived "usability" feature that is on by default. To resolve this, you will need to disable some of the window manager's key bindings: Go to Settings > Window Manager Tweaks >Accessibility and set the "Key used to grab and move windows" to "None." Or only play in full screen mode, where the Alt isn't trapped by the window manager.
