        Simply solution just look at how Trading View does this.

        Number keys control the timeframe desired. Then followed by a single letter to reference the time range. Just start typing and a pop up appears to quickly get the chart timeframe you desire, then press the Enter / Return key. No mouse is needed it's perfect.

        Here are some examples:

        5 = 5 minutes
        8h = 8 hours
        1d = 1 day
        4w = 4 weeks
        6m = 6 months
        5000t = 5000 ticks

        No better or faster workflow solution for this request.

        Though knowing cTrader they will probably go with a method that is much more arduous requiring a multitude of clicks.

        They like making features that require their users to over click, they think clicking is fun!

        Yes i would very much want this as well.
        Like you have shortcuts for Alt+ 1-3 to change from Candlesticks to line etc.
        Please do similar for time frames, which could be custom changed.

        I use 5m, 30m, 1h, 4h, and daily alot

        Using shortcut key combo with the mouse for zooming, panning, scrolling, etc. would be very handy in this case.
