Conclusion

It’s hard to remember keyboard shortcuts at once.

So, I think you only have to remember the shortcuts that are often used first, and then only the ones that you need.

If you use the free app “CheatSheet” introduced at the link below, you can display a list of keyboard shortcuts for various apps, not just the Finder, on the screen.
