I am a great fan of keyboard shortcuts. They really speed up my post processing workflow.

However, I am having problems with the "Fill" keyboard shortcut which is supposed to be Shift + F5.

After I select my area with a selection tool, I try Shift + F5 to bring up the fill command but, nothing happens.

What am I doing wrong?

I've always used Ctrl Delete/Backspace (fill with background colour) or Alt Delete/Backspace (fill with foreground colour).

I don't know the answer to your question, except to say that there are one or two that don't work on my computer either. I assume they're somehow used by my OS instead.

Anyway, it's no big deal. If the above shortcuts don't work for you, just go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts and choose a new one.

I tried Shift+F5 on a New Document along with a photo that has the layer locked and Shift+F5 worked as it is supposed to (using Mac).

In Photoshop look in the Edit menu - Keyboard Shortcuts and verify that Shift+F5 is expected to be used for Fill.

Here is what I see when I look there under the Edit subtitle:

SHIFT+F5 works for me, but personally I would just RIGHT CLICK within the selection.

“I've always used Ctrl Delete/Backspace (fill with background colour) or Alt Delete/Backspace (fill with foreground color).”

But what if you want to fill with content aware or a color other than foreground or background?

Then you'd use Alt-E-L as normal.

Never heard of Alt-E-L before (but it seems to work). Shift+F5 works for me as well.
