Project Shortcuts

Everyone's always looking for shortcuts in life so I figured I'd share some of my favorite Project keyboard shortcut commands.  You have to concentrate a bit at first to use them but once you have them down you will save lots of time not having to constantly switch between your keyboard and mouse.

    Also, if you’re working with the schedule on Manual Calculation:

    To calculate local project: F9

    To calculate all open projects: Shift + F9

    btw, those work in 2007 as well…

    my 2 cents:

    Expand node: SHIFT+ALT+"+"

    Collapse node: SHIFT+ALT+"-"
