How to select buildings?

I can’t seem to find hotkeys to select a building. Used to be like ctrl s and things like that in aoe2. Doesn’t seem to work in this game? I may be stupid and missing something easy, fair chance of that. Any help would be appreciated.


If follows the grid system, but starts by first selecting the age specific hotkey. This also follows the grid system. So Q to access age 1 buildings, W to access age 2 buildings and so on. Example given, in order to quickly build a house you select one or more villagers and press Q Q. The video below explains it quite well and goes in deeper too. Yes, it differs a bit from AOE II.

You’ll find the complete list of hotkeys here.
