Keyboard Shortcuts

Mac OS X users: In windowed mode, F12 and F11 may be intercepted by the desktop, so you may need to combine them with the Cmd key, for instance Cmd+F12 to toggle menu mode. With a laptop, you may even need to combine this with the Fn key, depending on your setup.

  • F12 – Enter/exit menu mode. See notes for laptop and Mac OS X users below.
  • F12 + QQuit the emulator.
  • F12 + GRelease/capture mouse and keyboard input grab. Clicking the middle moue button will also release input grab.
  • F12 + F – Toggle full-screen mode.
  • F12 + Z or F11 – Cycle through zoom modes.
  • F12 + B – Toggle border display, zooming out a little bit to reveal more of the display.
  • F12 + S or Print Scrn – Save a screenshot of the current Amiga frame to the desktop.
  • F12 + R – Soft reset.
  • F12 + THard reset.
  • F12 + AFreeze button for use with Action Replay.
  • F12 + D – Activate debugger (console only).
  • F12 + M to mute the sound.
  • F12 + W to toggle warp mode (no frame limit, no audio). This does not affect the emulation accuracy, it only removes the pauses between generating frames.
  • F12 + Comma to decrease the volume.
  • F12 + Period to increase the volume.
  • F12 + P or Pause/Break key to pause the emulation.

Laptop users: Depending on your laptop, you may need to combine the above keyboard shortcuts with the Fn key, or toggle the F-Lock key first. Worst case is Mac laptop where you may need to press Fn+Cmd+Key.

For all shortcuts where F12 is combined with another key, you can also use F11 instead. Example: F11+Q will also quit the emulator.

Emulating a Joystick or Gamepad via the Keyboard

See Keyboard Input.

Additional Shortcuts

The following shortcuts work, but you should be aware that the Alt key press will be sent to the emulated Amiga before you have completed the shortcut combination, so the key press may have side effects on the emulated Amiga:

  • Alt+Tab (or Cmd+Tab) – Switch to another window / release input grab.
  • Alt+F4 – Quit the emulator.
  • Alt+Enter (or Cmd+Enter) – Toggle fullscreen mode.
  • Ctrl+F10 – Toggle performance graphs / FPS display (There are two FPS numbers shown, SYS: actual video output frame rate. EMU: emulated video frame rate).

Additional Shortcuts in Net Play Mode

The following shortcuts will only have an special effect while in net play mode:

  • Tab – toggle chat function.

  1. Is there a way to map something from a joystick to quit fs uae? or do I need to map that in the OS and have a dedicated button for alt-F4?

    • You can add something like this to a config or advanced settings in FS-UAE Launcher:
      joystick_0_button_0 = action_quit

  2. Hi,
    Is there a way to remap the F12 key? The reason for that is I don’t have F11 and F12 on my keyboard (F1 ~ F10 only).
    I’m using linux, so probably I can play around with the system. Still, if the FS-UAE offers this it would be more convenient.

    Regards,
    AK

    • Hi, if you upgrade to the development version, the default modifier key is now (Left) Alt (in addition, F12 still works).

  3. Thank you for that great program.
    there is no shortcut for save states?

    Thanks
