This question already has an answer here:

I'd like to assign hotkeys to certain actions, like for example "Extrude Individual Faces"? Is there a list of all possible commands somewhere?

For example, in this picture "view3d.edit_mesh_extrude_move_normal" is the command or function. So where can I find a list of all possible commands so I can assign hotkeys to them?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yes, that list does help but turning on the python tooltips also worked, so should the question be left so Robert can get the rep credit? – Thom Blair III Mar 19 '14 at 17:40
@ThomBlairIII The question (and it's answers) will still be here if it's closed as a duplicate. – gandalf3 Mar 19 '14 at 18:26

You can turn on python tooltips in User preferences > Interface > Display. Hover over the tool or button you want to assign a shortcut for and a function name is shown.

I did not know tooltips could be turned off. I use them all the time to help me learn the python property names for fields. – Mutant Bob Mar 21 '14 at 17:26

You can use the output in the info window to get the python equivalent command of an action. The info panel will echo all commands.

I can't remember which, but I think there are some commands which this doesn't show. – Ray Mairlot Mar 19 '14 at 18:41
@RayMairlot possible, I don't know. – Vader Mar 19 '14 at 18:52

Many buttons will have an option to create (or if a shortcut already exists, remove or change) a shortcut when you right click on the relevant button:
