I'm running ArcMap 10.3 and am wondering the quickest way to export a map from the layout view without navigating up to the File menu & clicking the "Export Map" feature. Which is to say, I'm looking for a keyboard shortcut for this feature.

I can't find a built-in keyboard shortcut for exporting but I've noticed that if the File drop down menu is clicked, I can simply hit the E key and that will bring up the Export Map dialog box. Does anyone know of a shortcut to at least open/expose the File drop down menu in the top left? If so, then it's a quick 2 strokes and I'm there.

  • you can create a toolbar with a shortcut (like using CTRL+ALT+E) desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/get-started/… – Mapperz Apr 13 '17 at 18:45
  • Thanks! This got me part of the way there - found out I can just assign the Export Map function a custom keyboard shortcut of my own under the "Keyboard" option of the Customize dialog box. – Will Apr 13 '17 at 18:53

Alt+F is the standard Windows keyboard shortcut to open the File Menu, so Alt+F, E will get you your Export dialog.
