This question already has an answer here:

Another question asks whether there is a keyboard shortcut for evaluating a notebook. The answer is yes. The quickest way that someone came up with was pressing Alt+V and then O, but the question did not ask for which way was fastest.

My question is different. I am asking whether there is a way that is faster than typing Alt+V and then O.

This might be another key combination, or it might be making a button that can be put at the top of the notebook. Getting a button which appears at the top of the code when the program is opened, and that I can click on to execute the whole thing, would be ideal.

    $\begingroup$ What's wrong with the answer in the linked question? It does exactly what you asked (assign a single key combination to "evaluate notebook") $\endgroup$ – Lukas Lang Sep 18 '17 at 8:13
  • $\begingroup$ First, I'm specifically asking for a faster way to do it than is given in that answer. The other question doesn't ask for the fastest way to do it. Second, the fastest way may not comprise a keyboard combination. $\endgroup$ – user51827 Sep 18 '17 at 8:15

    $\begingroup$ Many people would consider a button to be slower than a keyboard shortcut. If that's what you prefer, though, it's addressed in this question: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/138902/…, which you can find by searching for "button evaluate" on mathematica s.e. $\endgroup$ – Simon Rochester Sep 18 '17 at 22:17
