| Updated on: August 24, 2021

What do we mean when we talk about shortcut keys in TallyPrime?

Shortcut keys are primarily used to simplify the recording of various transactions in TallyPrime. Tally software uses the keyboard functions to operate, journalize, and report the financial statements prepared for the users to interpret and take faster decisions.

Shortcut keys are a set of one or more keys that help to activate a function without the mouse. Short cuts invoke a command in Tally software as an alternative to mouse clicks or contentious use of Enter Key.

In TallyPrime there are shortcuts for almost all functions. This means that you can use Tally software without touching the mouse, which will help you in faster data entry, easy navigation, easy report viewing, easy printing, export-import of data etc.
