Part of QuickBooks 2009 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

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.
