Keyboard Shortcuts for QuickBooks Power Users

Posted by sandy Waggett on Mon, Jan 27 2014 @ 08:46 AM

Keyboard shortcuts can be a lifesaver in a time crunch.  The ability to keep your hands on your keyboard rather than switching back and forth between it and your mouse can increase productivity.  You also won’t have to search through all the buttons in the program to find what you need.  Take a look at this list of QuickBooks keyboard shortcuts from the QuickBooks User Guide to make your work simpler.

Some people may not care for shortcuts because they can be hard to remember; but once you get the hang of it, you realize just how much they can help.  We’re not saying you will never have to use your mouse again, but you can definitely quit reaching for that mouse every other second and actually get some work done!
