QuickBooks 2009 strives to make your accounting easy by making use of every available tool. You have the keyboard for shortcuts and the right-click button of the mouse for help opening windows and accessing menus.

To perform a common task related to a window, click the right mouse button to display a shortcut menu. In a register, select and right-click a specific transaction; in a list, right-click an item; in a form, display a transaction and right-click a blank area of the form. QuickBooks displays a shortcut menu of common commands for the particular transaction, item, or window. For example, it often displays commands for memorizing or voiding the transaction or for creating a QuickReport on the transaction. The commands differ based on the type of transaction you select.
