We might take for granted the ability to modify shortcuts. But not every DAW has this feature*. Luckily Cubase is not one of them and you can set a hotkey for literally anything. If there is no something that you want, there is a big chance to create a macro, that consists of smaller tasks and is able to do what you need. It is better to overcome brain laziness and learn hotkeys from the very beginning, Cubase don't spam with UI elements and gets some hate from point-and-click lovers for that. I think using hotkeys pays back pretty quick and gives you feeling like you operate a star ship, that flies you to your imaginary song instead of distracting your brain with necessity to search the right button on the screen.
