You can use keyboard shortcuts instead of your mouse to open windows, select buttons, menus and other options in AccountRight.
Use the Alt key
To select a button, menu or option while viewing a specific window, press the
Alt key and then the shortcut letter that's assigned to the object you want to select. For example, when you press
Alt in the Sales window, the Record button label will show the letter
o underlined. This means that if you press
Alt and the letter
o) the sale will be recorded. Note that the Alt key shortcuts vary across command centres. For example, Alt+u in the Payroll command centre will open the Payment Summary Assistant. But Alt+u on the Purchases command centre will open the New Purchase window.

Ctrl key and a shortcut letter. Unlike the
Alt key which relates to shortcuts on the window you're viewing, the
Ctrl key is for shortcuts that work from any window.
We've listed the more common shortcut key combinations in the table below.
Here's a shortcut you can use when searching for something in a list (such as in the Reconcile Accounts window). Click in the list and then press
