Keyboard Shortcuts for QuickBooks Online

Keyboard shortcuts can be a period saver when you're involved in QuickBooks so I’m thrilled to share keyboard shortcuts for QuickBooks Online (QBO).  Plus, you can use my One Click Trick in QuickBooks Online to create your very own ‘icon bar’ to get into things you employ most often with only one click.  The keyboard shortcuts is going to work in Chrome or Firefox.

The QBO keyboard shortcuts try not to work with web browser (IE) (at this time).  There are quite a few things in QBO that don't work correctly with IE 11 therefore you should not use IE for QuickBooks Online. 

I would suggest using Chrome with QuickBooks Online so you can put up a QBO user in Chrome.  This enables you to definitely use my One Click Trick and clear the cache and cookies without affecting your other browsing.  I explain and explain to you just how to do these things
