The term, hotkey, applies to any of the keys on the keyboard that have been assigned by Clicker Heroes to do a certain task when or while pressed. At the moment, the game counts 16 hotkeys, but that number can grow in the future.
Types of Hotkeys
Clicker Heroes counts 9 hotkeys used for the activation of Skills, assigned with the number 1 to 9 in the order in which they are unlocked.
For strategies on the order to press the numbers, see Skills.
There are also 5 hotkeys used for changing the purchase quantity of hero and ancient levels. This allows you to buy a lot of levels at once, which becomes essential when you're entering later stages of the game.
|Hotkey||Purchase Quantity Heroes Tab||Purchase Quantity Ancients Tab||Priority|
|Shift||×10||10 × base quantity||3rd|
|Z||×25||1000 × base quantity||4th|
|Ctrl||×100||100 × base quantity||2nd|
|Q||×9999 or MAX||10000 × base quantity||5th|
|V||-||[user specified number]||1st|
The priority describes the order in which they'll take effect when multiple keys are pressed simultaneously. In addition, you can toggle between these modifiers in ascending order using the 'T' hotkey.
Also, while Shift, Z and/or Ctrl are pressed, a Minimize/Maximize button for Heroes and Ancients will appear. The disband button for Mercenaries will only appear while Ctrl is pressed.
A few hotkeys in the game can be used while in the Gilded Heroes tab of the game, to make regilding Heroes easier.
|Ctrl||Autoconfirms a de-gild.|
|Shift||Gives the selected hero a random Gild from another hero.|
|Q||Moves all Gilds not currently on that hero to the selected hero.|
Assign/remove Auto Clicker
There is currently three hotkeys that interacts with Auto Clicker, and the hotkeys are 'Q', 'C', and 'Shift'. While 'Q' is pressed, if you click on the button at the right of your screen, the game will automatically remove all active Auto Clickers, if you have any. This is especially useful for hybrid players, who will want to switch their Auto Clicker at least once per ascension from leveling their main hero(es) to clicking on the monster. When 'C' is pressed, if you click on a place where an Auto Clicker, it will place an Auto Clicker there. This is useful for players when they want to put an Auto Clicker on their main hero(es) quickly. When you are dragging an Auto Clicker, and you hold "Shift' while placing it on the monster, it will put all remaining Auto Clickers. This is useful for hybrid players, who will want to put all Auto Clickers on the monster at the same time.
There is currently only 1 hotkey in the other section. This is the hotkey used for changing between Farm and Progression Mode, unlocked after beating level 100: A
