In Unity, I can press Super+1, Super+2 and so on to access favorites.

What is the key-shortcut in gnome-shell and where can i customize it?

Edit: I mean favorites in Activities Menu (after bringing mouse to top-left of the screen or pressing Super)

be more specific do you mean the activites menu in the top right because that opens with super and has the favorites in it. –  user51425 Mar 20 '12 at 22:17

As far as I know, that isn't currently possible. You're welcome to open a wishlist bug for it though.

I don't know how to open a "whishlist bug" :). –  BornToCode Apr 1 '12 at 7:50

Run ubuntu-bug gnome-shell to report the bug, then someone else can mark it as wishlist (since normal people don't have the ability to change the bug priority). It will also need to be reported at bugzilla.gnome.org since the GNOME developers are the ones that would actually need to fix it. –  Jeremy Bicha Apr 2 '12 at 16:29

There is a way to access your favorites in the dash using the keyboard. First press 'super' to open the overview, then press 'alt'+'control'+'tab' to pop up the accessibility switcher and focus on the Dash. Then you can navigate your favorite apps using the 'up' and 'down' keys, and launch them by hitting 'enter'. It's not very convinient, in my opinion, but it's an option.


I think it is much easier to simply hit 'Super' and type out the application name. But that's just me

You're right, it works, but typing app name is much simpler and faster. –  BornToCode May 8 '12 at 1:56
    
I agree, typing the app name is faster for launching it. That's what I usually do. However, having keyboard access to the dash can be useful if you have the jump lists gnome extension installed. You can select one app and hit the context menu key to see your recently used files. –  cantillon May 14 '12 at 1:43

This does not provide a sufficient answer to the question. Try to add more information, and / or examples. –  Mitch Oct 7 '12 at 10:25
