Keyboard shortcut for closing a topic

Is there a keyboard shortcut to close a topic?

No there is no such short cut, I think it makes sense to add a keyboard shortcut that opens the admin wrench, and then a second key like c could close a topic.

Going to mark this as a feature request.

Step 0 is figuring out what we want the shortcut to be for opening admin topic wrench.


Are there shortcuts not listed on the shortcut help modal?

Hey look, I can copy it!

Aside from those, are any other reserved?

Also, I notice my keyboard is missing a wrench key (:wrench:), so my first choice is out. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I suggest Shift + a for opening the admin wrench.
