Keyboard shortcuts

We get it — you have a lot to do. There’s no time to waste, and we want to help you get the icons and illustrations you need without slowing you down.

That’s why we are introducing shortcuts that make it super easy to download or copy icons, just by using your keyboard!

Here’s how it works: When searching on Iconfinder, we present a handful of keyboard shortcuts that can help you quickly grab the content you need, without too much clicking around.


The keyboard shortcuts work when hovering icons & illustrations. For example, in order to download an icon from your search results, simply hover over the icon, and hit the D key. The icon will be downloaded in the last format you used. If you prefer a more specific approach to downloading, you can use S and P to download SVG and PNG respectively.

Copying to clipboard

In a similar fashion, you can use the (MacOS) modifier with S and P keys to copy specific formats. So + S and + P to copy SVG and PNG respectively. For Windows users, that‘s Alt + S and Alt + P.

It’s as easy as that!

Here is a nice overview of all the keyboard shortcuts:
