  14. Keyboard Shortcuts • Ctrl + L - Displays the Lookup window • The cursor must be placed in a field that uses the lookup window • Enter a letter or number to seed the value of the lookup. When the lookup window appears, the cursor will have already moved to a starting position based on your entry. Use the up/down arrows or page up/down keys to move the cursor and hit “Enter” to select the item.

  15. Keyboard Shortcuts • Tab - moves the cursor to the next field, but also be mindful that Shift + Tab moves to the previous field. Tab sequences (the order that the cursor moves in) can be changed using Microsoft Dynamics GP Modifier. • Ctrl + A This keystroke selects all text, which is perhaps more useful when you need to select all text in a Word document or an Excel spreadsheet.

  16. Keyboard Shortcuts • Ctrl + C - Copy • Ctrl + V - Paste • Hit “Enter” to fire repetitive mouse clicks. Open up a window such as Vendor Maintenance. At the bottom of the screen, click on the Next Record navigation arrow to bring up a record. Leave the mouse hovering over this navigation arrow. You can hit “Enter” and the next record will display. You can continue this process for as long as you like, providing a very handy way to quickly review consecutive records.

  17. Keyboard Shortcuts • Move to next field : tab • Move to previous field : shift + tab • Move from scrolling window to next field : ctrl + tab • Move from scrolling window to previous field : shift + ctrl + tab • Default button on a window : enter • Close the current window : ctrl + w • Exit application :alt + x
