Learning keyboard shortcuts in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 may take some time to learn, but will eventually save you time once they become a part of your routine. Here is a list of 15 keyboard shortcuts I compiled designed specifically to help you navigate Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.
*Please note that these shortcut keys are based on the US keyboard layout.
