Thanks for the prompt reply. I use MS 8. There are only the following shortcuts in the Manual. Action Accelerator Key Bold toggle CTRL+B Underline toggle CTRL+U Italics toggle CTRL+I Center align paragraph CTRL+E Left align paragraph CTRL+L Right align paragraph CTRL+R Increase paragraph indent CTRL+M Decrease paragraph indent CTRL+SHIFT+M Find text CTRL+F Find next F3 Replace text CTRL+H The standard Windows Edit controls also work within a commentary. Action Accelerator Key Cut to clipboard CTRL+X Copy to clipboard CTRL+C Paste from clipboard CTRL+V Select All text CTRL+A Undo last action CTRL+Z Redo last Undo CTRL+Y I believe there are many more in MS?

What exactly are you looking for? There are those ultra secret combos that only the insiders know... LOL! Press the ALT key 3 times and then press Ctrl-Tab... that sorta thing... Only Patrick knows about those though. ROFL! :jester:

Well, like Wabbit said, they are on the back of the manual. You could press Ctrl and try the alphabet to create your own list, I suppose. Good luck.

Well, I know this is an old post, but I wanted to find these Keyboard shortcuts / Keyboard Accelerator keys myself, couldn't find it. So, tried all keys and combinations that I could think of and this is what I came up with. I hope it does help someone.


Move through Instruments in Watchlist - ALT + <right or left arrows> or ALT + Mouse Scroll Wheel (up or down)

Move through Open Charts - CTRL + TAB (forward) / CTRL + TAB + SHIFT (backward)

Change Periodicity - SHIFT + Mouse Scroll Wheel

Zoom in/ Out - CTRL + Mouse Scroll Whell

Open Power Console Explorer - CTRL + E

Open Power Console System Test - CTRL + T or CTRL + W

Open Downloader - CTRL + D

Open Expert Advisor - CTRL + R

Open File - CTRL + O

Open Forecaster - CTRL + F

Open List Manager - CTRL + L

Open Indicator Builder - CTRL + B

Open New Composite - CTRL + M

Close current Window - CTRL + F4

Cut to clipboard CTRL+X
Copy to clipboard CTRL+C
Paste from clipboard CTRL+V
Select All text CTRL+A
Undo last action CTRL+Z
Redo last Undo CTRL+Y
