# shortcut for running the simulation in Blender 2.8 instead of Alt+A?

I'm following this tutorial, and at 1:40 it presses Alt+A to "run the simulation":




However, this keyboard shortcut does not work ib blender 2.8. I was wondering if you could help me know:

• what is the right keyboard shortcut for doing the above step
• how I can do this from the menus/toolbars? (if I forgot the shortcut)

If above are not possible then if there are specific tutorials replicating the above tutorial in 2.8?

• @lemon are you sure about that? Playing the animation is just spacebar when using the default settings (unless you mapped the search function to spacebar). – Robert Gützkow Aug 29 '19 at 12:45
• @rjg is my setting modified? Don't think so, but? i.stack.imgur.com/2kl0S.jpg – lemon Aug 29 '19 at 12:47
• @lemon Just checked, it's spacebar with the factory settings. – Robert Gützkow Aug 29 '19 at 12:48
• @lemon it did not work. it opens a selection box with select box, cursor ... options in it. – Foad Aug 29 '19 at 12:48
