"Search All" and "Replace all" in current file as a keyboard shortcut

Add a keyboard shortcut for “search all” and “replace all” in when the search (ctrl-f) and replace (ctrl-h) ui are active.

VS Code uses:
Alt-Enter: Search all
Ctrl-Alt-Enter: Replace all

  1. Press Ctrl + H.
  2. Hover over elements. Notice how “Prev”, “Next”, and “Replace” have a keyboard shortcut defined, but “Replace all” doesn’t.

I’m personally using Atom as my default editor, and it uses Enter for replacing one occurence and Ctrl + Enter to replace all occurrences, so I’d be comfortable with that approach.


I second this. My daily workflow involves checklists, so the first step of my day is replacing all instances of [x] with [ ]. I can do everything on the keyboard except for the final replace all. This goes hand in hand with Check and uncheck all checkboxes

Really would love to see this developed!

I’ve been missing this hotkey since day one.

I’m used to Sublime Text, which uses ctrl+alt+enter as a shortcut for Replace all– but also allows for the shortcut to be customized.

will be implemented in 0.13.18
