Tips and Tricks for Using QuickBooks 2006

Part of QuickBooks 2006 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

What happens when you right-click in QuickBooks 2013 depends on what you’re doing at the time. When you right-click, QuickBooks displays a shortcut menu of common commands for the particular transaction, item, or window you are working in. For example, it often displays commands for memorizing or voiding the transaction, or creating a QuickReport on the transaction. The commands differ based on the type of transaction you select.

Here are some more QuickBooks interface tricks:

  • To get help, click the How Do I? button in the upper-right corner of the dialog box and choose a topic from the drop-down list.

  • To move quickly to a specific list box entry, press the letter.

  • To select a list box entry and choose a dialog box’s suggested command button, double-click the entry.

  • To move the insertion point to the beginning of a field, press Home.

  • To move the insertion point to the end of a field, press End.

  • QuickBooks locks the active window into place and then displays a list of windows in its Navigator pane, which is like another little window. To move to a listed window, just click it.

  • To remove the Navigator, choose View, Open Window List. (You can move the other locked pane which lists windows, called the Shortcuts List, by choosing Lists, Shortcut List.)

  • To tell QuickBooks to use windows the same way every other program does, choose View, Multiple Windows.
