SOLIDWORKS Command Search is a great time saver

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated May 3, 2012


I have a feeling that the SOLIDWORKS Command Search function will become your new best friend. No more wasting time trying to find the icon or menu item for a particular SOLIDWORKS command. Just start typing the command you require in the “Command Search” field and suddenly you will have 3 options to choose from:

  1. Run the command
  2. Drag the command’s icon to any toolbar of your choosing
  3. Find the Icon or Menu Item for that command

Things get even better when using the Shortcut Bar (by default the “S” shortcut key). Just press S and continue to type the command you are looking for. You will find out that the Command Search field is activated and is filled out as you type.

Watch this short video for a quick demo of this functionality:
