You can perform almost any task in Quicken simply by clicking something—the Icon Bar, a toolbar, a shortcut menu, a menu-bar menu, or an onscreen button. But the seconds you spend mousing around from click to click insidiously eat away at your productivity.
If you spend even a few minutes a day with Quicken, keyboard shortcuts are your friend. They take you right where you want to go in a fraction of a second. This appendix lists Quicken’s most useful keyboard shortcuts. Each section starts with the best ones to commit to memory.
For a complete list of Quicken’s keyboard shortcuts, search the Help file (press F1 to open Help) for “keys” or “Quick keys.” (Quicken Help doesn’t have an index entry called “keyboard shortcuts.”)
