Keyboard Shortcuts for QuickBooks Online

Keyboard shortcuts can be a period saver whenever you are employed in QuickBooks so I’m happy to share keyboard shortcuts for QuickBooks Online (QBO). Plus, you need to use my One Click Trick in QuickBooks Online to create your own personal ‘icon bar’ to gain access to things you employ most often with just one click. The keyboard shortcuts will work in Chrome or Firefox.

The QBO keyboard shortcuts usually do not operate in web browser (IE) (at the moment). There are a number of things in QBO which do not work correctly with IE 11 so you should not use IE for QuickBooks Online.

I suggest using Chrome with QuickBooks Online so you can set up a QBO user in Chrome. This enables you to use my One Click Trick and clear the cache and cookies without inside your other browsing. I explain and show you how exactly to do these exact things

Keyboard Shortcuts for QuickBooks Online
In Chrome or Firefox:

Ctrl+Alt+I = Invoice
Ctrl+Alt+W = Write Checks
Ctrl+Alt+X = Expense
Ctrl+Alt+R = Receive Payment
Ctrl+Alt+E = Estimate
Ctrl+Alt+L = Lists
Ctrl+Alt+A = Accounts
Ctrl+Alt+C = Customers
Ctrl+Alt+V = Vendors
Ctrl+Alt+F = Search transactions
Ctrl+Alt+H = Help

On Transaction Pages (Invoice, expense, etc.)

Ctrl+Alt+D = Save & Close
Ctrl+Alt+S = Save & New
Ctrl+alt+M = Save & Send
Ctrl+Alt+X = Exit transaction
Ctrl+Alt+C = Cancel
Calculate — in a sum or quantity field, type in the calculation and hit tab. For example for just two * 5 = 10, key in 2*5 and hit tab therefore the results of 10 will be calculated and entered on the go.
