Tips for Using the Shape Tools in Illustrator

Holding the Shift key constrains the shape. For Example, with the Rectangle tool, holding Shift draws a square and the Circle tool draws a perfect circle. (Remember to release the mouse button first.)

Holding the Spacebar allows you to drag the partially completed shape to a new location and complete the drawing there. (Keep the mouse button held down and then release the Spacebar when repositioned to continue to draw the shape.)

Alt draws from the centre outward with the Rectangle, Circle and Rounded Rectangle tools. (The Star and Polygon which do that by default.)

Using the Up or Down Arrows while drawing with the Polygon or Star tool will increase or decrease the number of points.

So, the fastest way to draw a triangle is with the Polygon tool (nested with the Rectangle tool [M]). While drawing a polygon, hit the Down Arrow key on your keyboard multiple times to reduce the number of sides.

With the Star tool, holding Ctrl while dragging extends the points. Hold the Alt key while dragging to reset the original points.
