Time Saving Keyboard Shortcuts

Why do people use keyboard shortcuts?  I used to teach beginner computer classes and one thing that always confused people is the multiple ways of doing the same thing.  I always had a hard time answering that question, but over the years, I’ve found myself using more and more keyboard shortcuts because they do really save time.  I especially like using the shortcuts in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.  It seems to make moving around faster and smoother.  I don’t have to switch back and forth from the keyboard to the mouse.

Here are the shortcuts I use everyday:

  • Ctrl + X = Cut
  • Ctrl + C = Copy
  • Ctrl + V = Paste
  • Ctrl + Z = Undo
  • Ctrl + K = Insert a hyperlink
  • Ctrl + F = Find
  • F5 (at the top of the keyboard) = refreshes a webpage
  • F1 = usually opens help

Besides these sort of global ones, there are keyboard shortcuts specific to Dynamics 365 or CRM.  Did you know Alt + S will save and close a screen?  Or that Esc will close a look-up or drop-down list?

Here’s a downloable list for you of some great Dynamics CRM shortcuts.

I suggest starting with a few and see if you like them.  You might find these to be time-savers too!
