I started playing this with a steam controller. When playing with that controller you could hit the R/L back trigger (under bumper? not the trigger and not the bumper) and cycle the active row of inventory. Convenient way to switch between a weapon and a pick for instance.

Now I'm on a new computer and trying to bind the steam controller correctly. Or set up a brand new "just right for me" controller config.

I can't figure out what key actually does this. It's not on the wiki and I can't find it in any steam discussions.

  • Are you asking about default keyboard + mouse controls? Commented May 13, 2017 at 21:19
  • Yes. There is a way to cycle those rows but it's not listed on the wiki. Or in the game. But you can do it with a steam controller.

    It can be done with a Steam controller and "Gamepad with camera controls" scheme. The right/left bumper buttons will cycle the active tool row. But the HUD mode won't show me what button that is. The keycodes are 17 and 18.

    On the Nintendo Switch this feature is called "Shift Toolbar". On PC using keyboard and mouse there seems to be no way to configure it at the moment, but someone made a mod: github.com/Pathoschild/StardewMods/blob/stable/RotateToolbar/…

    tab key works with vanilla version now Commented May 12, 2020 at 2:07

Turns out that it is not possible on keyboard (bug?) and can only be configured using a controller. There is a mod on Nexus which allows you to do this by using (by default) the tab key. The key is configurable!

Here is an image of how it works (from the mod page): enter image description here
