Key Keyboard Shortcuts for Dynamics GP

There are people in life who like their coffee black, while others can’t stomach it without cream and sugar. The same is true of your computer mouse—some people love using the mouse and others prefer to use their keyboard whenever possible. So here are some of our favorite keyboard shortcuts in our office and at client sites.

Ctrl + L

  • Displays the Lookup window
  • The cursor must be placed in a field that uses the lookup window

Speed it up! Enter a letter or number to seed the value of the lookup. When the lookup window appears, the cursor will have already moved to a starting position based on your entry. Use the up/down arrows or page up/down keys to move the cursor and hit “Enter” to select the item.


Tab moves the cursor to the next field, but also be mindful that Shift + Tab moves to the previous field. Tab sequences (the order that the cursor moves in) can be changed using Microsoft Dynamics GP Modifier.

Ctrl + A

This keystroke selects all text, which is perhaps more useful when you need to select all text in a Word document or an Excel spreadsheet.

Ctrl + C


Ctrl + V


Alt + F9

Opens up Report Writer

Hit “Enter” to fire repetitive mouse clicks.

Open up a window such as Vendor Maintenance.

At the bottom of the screen, click on the Next Record navigation arrow to bring up a record. Leave the mouse hovering over this navigation arrow. You can hit “Enter” and the next record will display. You can continue this process for as long as you like, providing a very handy way to quickly review consecutive records.
