Some of My Favorites

The following shortcuts are some of my favourites that I teach to clients in Dynamics GP, including:

  • Ctrl + L – Lookup
  • Ctrl + F4 – Closes your active window – it is important to note this is a standard window function as GP matches MS Windows
  • Alt + F4 – Closes GP
  • Pressing the space bar when you are on a check box field presses the check box – this is very handy for bank rec
  • Take note of accelerator keys. Note that b on the distributions button is underlined, and k in Print Check is underlined. Alt + B and Alt + K is the same as pressing those buttons with your mouse. Each GP window has accelerator keys.
