New system keyboard shortcuts


These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What's new and planned for Dynamics 365 Business Central. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

The tremendously popular list of keyboard shortcuts already available in the web (desktop) experience of the Business Central October '18 release has been expanded with many additional combinations. Examples include:

  • Slim/wide page mode (Ctrl+F12)
  • Show/hide fact box (Alt+F2)
  • Add new item (Alt+N)
  • Previous/next navigation (Ctrl+LeftArrow and Ctrl+RightArrow)

On top of that we have added an easily accessible list of keyboard shortcuts to the documentation page and made it easier for users to discover available shortcuts.
