You can know what keys a command is bound to with C-h w
C-h w ido-switch-buffer RET 
(here it says it's not bound to any key).

However, when I do C-h w find-file RET it says:
find-file is on <open>, C-x C-f, <menu-bar> <file> <new-file>

Notice the comas!  There's three ways to find-file thru "keys".

1-  keying the   <open>   key,

2-  keying C-x C-f,

3-  selecting the <menu-bar>, selecting the <file> item, 
    and selecting the <new-file> item.

I'd guess that the <open> key is what happens when you click on the
open button in the tool-bar.
