Why have the shortcuts changed?!

I've just updated my main CC apps to the 2020 version (Photoshop/Indesign/Illustrator) and have noticed throughout these that my shortcuts for menus and tools don't work.

I looked it up and it seems now you have to use letters for things like magnify and hand tool. Also in Indesign I noticed shift no longer constrains items to moving in one direction. This is all really aggravating as I've been using these products since they first arrived and now instinctively use these commands without thinking, this means I can work really quickly. If I now have to unlearn that and relearn new ones that is soooooo annoying! I mean really, why would you do that?

I can't believe the clever engineers would do something so ridiculous and thoughtless - please can you tell me if there is a way to revert back to using the old commands, or if something is going wrong with my mac that I can fix. This is what I'm using:

Late 2013 iMac
Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6
Adobe Indd/PS/Illustrator CC 2020

Thanks so much!
