Where Is That Icon Again?

I sometimes find myself forgetting where icons are in the ribbon, especially if it has been quite a few months since I last used the function. Yes, you can Google for a solution, provided that you are using the correct keywords, and sift through the drivel that the internet can contain.

In this example I have forgotten where the Place Group icon is in the ribbon. I also forgot what the Keyboard Shortcut was for the Place Group command. So: If we enter our Keyboard Shortcuts window, we will see both a Command, Shortcuts and Path column. If we search for the keyword: Group, we will see all shortcuts related to Groups, complete with their location in the ribbon.

In this instance, Architecture Tab > Model Panel > Model Group Icon > Place Model Group. Quick and easy, right?
