This is perhaps not so much a wish, but more of a thought I've had for many years about keyboard shortcuts:

A. It makes sense to have the most commonly used actions available to assign keyboard shortcuts to.
B. It would be nice if each and every function would be available to assign a keyboard shortcut to.

Neither A or B are ideal for every user.
Perhaps it would be possible to have the Hotkeys settings menu by default show the most common ones, but have a 'show all' button to display all possible actions?

+1
But who is to say (decide) on what the most commonly used settings. For instance, I can't ever recall a time where I used the tagging tool to remove a tag. Which someone requested today.

I think I developed minor nerve damage in my right hand by the amount of times I've used right click > Send to... > Replace selected track... to upgrade my songs to FLAC over the past few years.

A hotkey would be perfect because I still have many tracks to do.
