Yes, we do plan to implement keyboard configuration shortcuts. Please
have a look at

I'm not sure - you want to have symlinks creation with right mouse

As an old fashioned computer user, for me the fastest way for any gcmd
operation is keyboard - that's why you have CTRL+SHIFT+F5 shortcut...
The key combination was chosen for compatibility with Total Commander
