Suggestion: PNG and JPG buttons
At the export menu there should be a button that changes the file extension.

No button: JPG ---> PNG = ctrl+shift+e+end+p+n+g+enter = 8 keystrokes
Button: JPG ---> PNG = crtl+shift+e+"PNG"+enter = 5 keystokes

I process SO many files; this would really help.

RE: Suggestion: PNG and JPG buttons
Clicking a button isn't a keystroke, it's: leave keyboard, grab the mouse, point, click, leave the mouse, back to keyboard. Or even more keystrokes to navigate to the button is using the keyboard. Not much use for a "PNG" button since it's the default.

But I would understand that some people (photographers) would prefer a default extension of JPG settable in the Preferences dialog.

we need more polls on here, everyone get your vote in, click the rrradio buttons, you know you want to XD sasgfdsgasfdytfegfujvsdhv (time for sleep lol)

But seriously,
I would say no, people are confused already since they added the export option & changed the "save as" option to Gimps native .XCF extension.

...Gimp setup makes sense now though. (export; export from raw layers to another format, save as; save in gimp format, like PS's .PSD format)

As for fewer keystrokes, maybe you can remap key bindings to used less keys.
I find mouse clicks usually more efficient & quicker in most cases.
