Illustrator: keyboard shortcut for color picker

I’m working on various color schemes for my design elements. I wish I could simply fill the elements by copying and pasting hex-values using keyboard shortcuts.

Everytime, I have to double click on the ‘Fill’ to open ‘Color Picker’ where I get to paste the copied hex value, which is breaking my flow.

Is there a way to set a shortcut or workaround to address this issue?

Answer

Use the Color Panel not the Color Picker. That’s the entire reason there is a Color Panel in Illustrator. You do not ever really need the Color Picker.
