Quickly Change Views in SolidWorks

by John Koop, SolidWorks Specialist, TEDCF Publishing

This is a quick tip on how to quickly change views in SolidWorks.

While in part or assembly mode, you can quickly change the view orientation by simply holding the Ctrl key down and pressing the number keys 1-7 on your keyboard. Each number represents a different view.

  • Ctrl + 1 = Front View
  • Ctrl + 2 = Back View
  • Ctrl + 3 = Left View
  • Ctrl + 4 = Right View
  • Ctrl + 5 = Top View
  • Ctrl + 6 = Bottom View
  • Ctrl + 7 = Isometric View

The last option is the Link Views option.

Using these simple key commands make toggling through the various views much easier.
