Timesaving Tips Pt. 4

Okay – last set of keystroke tips and then next time it’s an entirely different topic!

The Esc key  closes whatever window you’re in

Pop-up calculator – hit an operator(+,-,*,/) when you’re in a numeric field and voila – up pops a calculator –  now you don’t need to copy & paste your answer!

The date shortcuts below you can use whenever you’re in a date field.  I find that they are frequently faster than  using the calendar. If you keep pressing the same key, it continues in the same direction (i.e. hitting the + multiple times keeps moving forward in time, pressing M multiple times keeps taking you to an earlier month). The letters are not case-sensitive, either.
