Is there a keyboard shortcut that allows me to navigate to the parent of the page I'm looking at?

I see there are "G + S" to browse the currect space and "G + D" to go to the Dashboard but neither really fits my use case.

As Confluence includes the jQuery library, I think it should be possible to write some code to put into Custom HTML which checks for a particular key press and performs some action. The following link is a discussion of implementing shortcut keys with jQuery, but bear in mind the shortcut key plugin mentioned for jQuery is not loaded via Confluence (as far as I know) so look down the proposed answers to the simple example with 2 votes. That relies on just jQuery code. To get the link to the parent, you could use jQuery to analyse the breadcrumbs links and pick the right one, or alternatively, package this as a user macro and then Velocity would give you the parent of the current page easily.

To add tot this, if you want to add your own keyboard shortcuts you can create them as Keyboard Shortcut Modules in a plugin. This will make them appear in the help dialog.

Unfortunately, there is not a shorcut for that.

You can see all available shorcuts by pressing '?'
