Search Commands

Search Commands lets you find and run commands from SolidWorks Search or locate a command in the user interface.

These features make it easy to find and run any SolidWorks command:
  • Results are filtered as you type and typically find the command you need within a few keystrokes.
  • When you run a command from the results list for a query, Search Commands remembers that command and places it at the top of the results list when you type the same query again.
  • Search shortcuts let you assign simple and familiar keystroke sequences to commands you use regularly.

For an example of how to use Search Commands, see Search Commands Example.
