Where is the ArcGIS Pro custom keyboard shortcut file stored on a Windows machine?

Last Published: January 31, 2024

Answer

ArcGIS Pro version 3.2 provides the functionality to create a custom keyboard shortcut. Creating custom keyboard shortcuts simplifies user interface commands by combining keystrokes on a keyboard. For more information on ArcGIS Pro keyboard shortcut utilization, refer to ArcGIS Pro: Use keyboard shortcuts.

On a Windows machine, the ArcGIS Pro custom keyboard shortcut is saved in a .daml file in the AppData local folder. Data, user profiles, and app settings unique to a single Windows machine are stored in the AppData local folder, which is hidden by default. A custom keyboard shortcut is stored in the .daml file in the AppData local folder, as it is an app setting particular to a single ArcGIS Pro user on one Windows system.

As the custom keyboard shortcut is specific to a single Windows system, there may be circumstances where it is necessary to share the file with another Windows system. Copying the file to another machine is useful in ensuring a standardized process and efficiency across a team.

To access the .daml file, copy the file path below and paste it into the Windows taskbar search box. Replace <userID> with the Windows user ID.

C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local\ESRI
Note: 
Esri does not recommend deleting or moving the .daml file as it can be corrupted.
