Tips and Tricks: More Keyboard Shortcuts


Thanks to the users  who suggested that all of us in Project-land should post more keyboard shortcuts. Here are some more. Some of the following come from user comment postings, and some of my own that I use daily.  Please keep your comments pouring in.

Here you go:

Indent a task

ALT  +  SHIFT + RIGHT ARROW

Oudent a task

ALT  +  SHIFT + LEFT ARROW

Scroll  to the beginning of the schedule (timeline)

ALT + HOME

Scroll to the end of the schedule

ALT + END

Remove all filters

F3

And if you missed the previous posting of keyboard magic, here they are repeated.

Scroll the timescale left or right              

ALT  +  LEFT ARROW (or RIGHT ARROW)

Show smaller time units on the timescale

CTRL +  / (slash on the numeric keypad)

Show larger time units on the timescale

CTRL + * (asterisk on the numeric keypad)

Scroll to a task’s Gantt bar

CTRL + SHIFT + F5

    Please be careful with the indent and outdent shortcuts! If you use SHIFT + ALT instead of ALT + SHIFT your keyboard and language will switch. That is: if multiple keyboards and languages are installed and the default shortcuts are still there. This is often the case with company pcs and laptops in European countries like Belgium and The Netherlands.
