So you’ve just used a tool in SOLIDWORKS and you want to use it again. Maybe the tool is not a common one listed in your toolbars so it takes time to find again.
Did you know that you can right-click in the graphics area and get a list of Recent Commands as shown in the screenshot below:
You can also Search for Commands using the drop down from the Search box, type in the command you require and hit Enter to launch it.
NOTE: The default keyboard shortcut to jump to Search Commands is “W”.
But did you know that if you just used a tool, you can press “Enter” to relaunch the same tool? The enter key is the default keyboard shortcut to ‘SOLIDWORKS Repeat Last Command’.
Just be aware that SOLIDWORKS keeps a constant track of the very last command you executed. So if you switched the view to Isometric or started a Sketch or even just hit Save, that becomes the “Last Command”.
