Default Keyboard Shortcuts (Key Bindings)

This page contains a list of the default keyboard shortcuts, also known as key bindings, for menu items. This list intentionally leaves out menu accelerators, as they are not user-configurable.

Notes About Key Bindings

Remember that it is possible to change a key binding within Pidgin. This FAQ entry explains one way. The other way is to modify .purple/accels. (See this FAQ entry for help on finding your .purple directory if you use Windows; otherwise it should be in your home directory.)
