Keyboard Shortcuts ~ Axis and Allies RTS ~ Micro Management
While most in-game tasks can be performed with the mouse alone, many of these tasks can be accomplished faster, and more efficiently, with the use of keyboard shortcuts. We have simplified the keyboard below by removing the keys that have no unique functions within A&A, and grouping the keys by color to give you a better idea of the layout. Mouseover the keys for more information
(registered users only, javascript enabled browser required)

You are viewing the unregistered version of this page. The full version contains over 100 images and dynamic mouse-over information for all the important game actions. For site performance reasons we have restricted access to the full version to registered users only. Registration is free, private and secure. We do not share or sell any user information.
