OK enough of the introduction, it’s time to quickly move on to the business end – Shortcuts! Yes, I mean the keys or the key combos used on a keyboard to get things done quicker than repeatedly clicking the mouse buttons for accomplishing the same tasks.
Shortcuts have been around and flourished since the emergence of keyboard computing in the 1970s. This is mostly because geeks are always on the hunt to eke out that extra productivity by having to not lift their dominant hand from the keyboard to grab the mouse repetitively. This greatly boosts the workflow as the keyboard becomes your main playground.
If you’re anything like me, you must have seen those movies where ‘hackers’ or ‘handlers’ of the hero (or villain) storm through the keyboard without touching the mouse at all. Yes, those scenes brought out some real self-loathing in me 😢
Nonetheless, without any further digression let us dive straight into learning some Tally shortcuts which greatly enhance the productivity and usability of Tally.ERP9.
