Apologies if exists somewhere else but as a neophyte here could someone post a complete list of key commands? Including the obvious such as 1 and 2 for AP and HE.

There are a few more not listed under F1. 

 

The ones I use a lot that aren't (at least they didn't used to be) shown are:

  • Ctrl - X =  Which locks your main guns to a fixed position (port, starboard ect.) on your ship. Hitting X will unlock them. 
  • Shift - X = Which locks your main guns to a fixed position on the map. Again hitting X will unlock them.
  • P = Disables/Enables your AA guns. Useful to stay hidden from planes, especially in DD's.
  • Ctrl - Left Mouse Button = Locks your secondary guns on a specific target. Works for targeting planes or ships. 

 

EDIT: Here's a Video that iChase just did explaining all the controls in WoWS. I recommend everyone check out his channel, he has lots of good tutorials for new players and experienced alike.

I had the same issue, because I tried rebinding the P key. I found that I could no longer use crtl / left click too focus AA/ secondaries. I had too reinstall the client and now works perfectly.

I'm having this very same problem right now.  It did work but no longer. It doesn't work on 2 different keyboards so I know it's in-game. Did you figure anything out besides the complete reinstall? This will be time consuming for me also.

 

Thanks in advance.

After seeing this discussion I too had to reinstall but it now works (CTRL+Left Mouse to lock secondaries or AA).

Remember, there is more than one control panel layout under F1, across the top for more commands and controls for what section you want.  But watching YouTube tutorials can be invaluable to learning how to properly execute them as well.

Ship Comrade is another very good site for this.

I know alt brings up stats, ie, health, distance, player name and ship type but is there a way to lock it so its always there instead of having to hold down alt?

I hope you find this helpful: List of Mouse and Keyboard Commands.

Yes there is.  For a brief explanation follow the link.  For a long explanation read View Basics. There is a link to it in List of Mouse and Keyboard Commands.

Go into the game directory find and delete the preferences.XML file.

 

This will force the game to make a new one and should fix your problem, though you'll have to completely redo any settings changes you made.
