    What Voyager Acquisitions keyboard shortcuts are available?


    As with most Windows programs, there are very helpful keyboard equivalents in Voyager that can be used instead of clicking with the mouse. Keyboard equivalents usually begin with the ALT key followed by the underlined letter of a command word in the menu. 

    Note: In order to see the underlined letter available for keyboard commands at all times (before pressing the ALT key), you may need to adjust your Windows display configuration. Consult your Windows documentation for help.

    If you have problems using special keys, contact your I.T. Department for assistance.
