Blender: Ctrl+T doesn’t work in the node/shader editor

Blender Ctrl+T doesn't work

Switching to a new laptop is the reason I’m running into a couple of issues in Blender, now that I’m also able to use the latest version (currently Blender version 2.82) of course. I didn’t save or port over any saved settings, so I’m back to the beginning.

Today, I really wanted to know why pressing Ctrl+T didn’t bring up the Texture Coordinate and Mapping nodes in the Shader Editor.

What’s the solution? It’s easy: Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Add-ons and enable Node: Node Wrangler.

Thank you for checking out my Blender Note! I am by all means a beginner in Blender, so I do not feel qualified to label this post as a 'tip' or 'tutorial'. However, I decided to upload this note for myself, and hopefully it can be useful to others as well.
