The window has the following elements:

The name of each keymap. There are some limitations on names, for example, names must start with an alphanumeric character. Invalid names will be flagged when creating a new keymap. A keymap named "Default" must exist at all times.
The keymap inherited by each keymap, if applicable.
The optional keymap description.
The number of bindings in each keymap, not including inherited bindings.
Profiles Using
The number of profiles which have each keymap assigned as their Keymap.
Keymaps Using
The number of keymaps which inherit either directly or indirectly from each keymap.
New Keymap

Clone Keymap

Delete Keymap

Rename the selected keymap or change its parent keymap.
