I’m an old school compter guy. I started before there ther were icons to point you in the right direction So, I have always used shortcut keys to help me navigate through transactions and data entry.
I resently came across an article on www.sleeter.com/blog that outlined some neat shortcut keys. I’ve outlined below the ones that may be of interest. You check at the full Sleeter blog post for a more comprehensive list.
