Opening QuickBooks Windows and Lists

From any point in QuickBooks, you can rapidly open a number of windows and lists with just a simple click.

Ctrl+W Opens the write check window to write the latest check
Ctrl+Q Open a Quick Report for a list item when you have chosen the item in the list
Ctrl+Y Open a transaction journal for a transaction, if you are seeing the transaction
Ctrl+J Open the customer center
Ctrl+A Open the Chart of Accounts
Ctrl+I Open the create invoice window to create a new invoice
Ctrl+L Open a list
Ctrl+U Use the list item in case you have just used ctrl+L to open the list from a transaction.
Ctrl+R Most transactions have a register associated with them. This opens the register for the transaction you are looking at
Ctrl+G This is an odd one I’m still figuring out. If you are in a register for an account, entering ctrl+G will take you to the register for the “transfer” account associated with the line you have selected
Ctrl+F Opens the find window for the list or transaction type you are working with. This is the old+style Find, not the new Search feature (F3)
F1 Opens the Help window
F2 Shows the Product Information window, which has a large amount of information that can be very helpful when diagnosing problems in QuickBooks (Ctrl+1 is an alternate)
F3 Starting with the 2011 version, this opens the newer Search feature (as opposed to the Find feature)
F3 In case you have the Product Information window open (by pressing F2), pressing F3 here will open the tech help window. This gives a massive range of system and diagnostic information, along with being a quick way to view.
F4 This opens the QuickBooks Technical Support Helper window
Ctrl+1 This does the same as F2, opening the Product Information window
Esc Exit the current window
Ctrl+F4 Exit the current window (same as Esc)
Ctrl+F6 Move to the next open window and make it active. NOTE that for some reason some windows versions do not allow this, such as the Accountant Center (thank you, Mary Longacre, for pointing that out)
Ctrl+Tab Same as Ctrl+F6, moves to the next open window
Ctrl+H Open the Transaction history – if you have a transaction like an invoice, which has payments applied to it, the transaction history can be very useful
