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.

The detailed list of existing and new keyboard shortcuts is available at
