Tips & Tricks: Jump to Home tab

YingDaveYingDave Member ✭✭
Was going to post an enhancement idea for a shortcut key to jump to the home tab. After trial and error I found one! Alt+Home keys takes you your home tab and on the last customised screen you have created there. Then after searching it's actually in the help file also.

So there you go - I will use it often. Give it a try. It's not obvious as it is not listed as a shortcut in the menu drop downs... cheers!

    Also just found a couple more undocumented - navigating screens that you were using previously, including which record/row you were on (like a browser) eg. in a register, then jump back to bills screen you were just using before etc.
    Alt+Left, Alt+Right for back, forward respectively - give them a try!

    Thank you for these usefull tips.

    Another one for you: Alt+Tab: you will be able to alternate between the program you're in and the last program still opened. I use this tips when I download my data from my bank website, so I can alternate between Quicken and the bank very quickly.

    Note: Those tips are not related with Quicken spacifically but with Windows. You can use them with any programs.

    More precisely, it takes you to the location you've specified in Preferences > Startup. For me, that's my checking register. So the online help is slightly in error.
