This shortcut opens the insert link popup, which is a bit distracting.

With WordPress 4.5, pressing CTRL+K will show an inline insert link menu. Simply type the URL and continue writing your post without removing hands from keyboard.


More Inline Text Shortcuts

Inline text shortcuts were introduced in WordPress 4.3. They allowed users to quickly add formatting markup by using simple text shortcuts.

WordPress 4.5 is introducing more shortcuts like code for code and **bold** for bold.
