Keyboard shortcuts can be a time saver when you are working in QuickBooks so I’m happy to share keyboard shortcuts for QuickBooks Online (QBO). Plus, you can use my One Click Trick in QuickBooks Online to create your own ‘icon bar’ to access things you use most frequently with just one click. The keyboard shortcuts will work in Chrome or Firefox.
The QBO keyboard shortcuts do not work in Internet Explorer (IE) (at this time). There are quite a few things in QBO that do not work correctly with IE 11 so you should not use IE for QuickBooks Online. Read more
