I know OpenERP/Odoo has some keyboard shortcut keys actions to edit, save and other actions, I can't remember how many but I guess four shortcut actions.

But I can't remember what keys are and what does, could anyone remember me what shortcut keys are available to Odoo without any module install, available core?

Few Basic Short Cut Keys are available to create/ edit records without installing any module

Alter +Shift + C → Create New Record

Alter +Shift + E → Edit Record

Alter +Shift + S → Save Record

Alter +Shift + D → Discard Record

Yeah, that was I'm looking for.

Starting from version 9, you have now other useful keyboard shorcuts:


Alt + Shift + O → Previous record

Alt + Shift + P → Next record

Alt + Shift + K → Go to Kanban view

Alt + Shift + L → Go to List view

Alt + Shift + F → Go to Form view


Thanks for sharing the shortcut of previous and next record. But, it seems Alt + Shift + F is not working on 9.0... checked it on both Firefox and Chrome...

I have just re-checked and it's working, but the behavior is not the same depending on the current view (it can go to a new record of the last one).

If you do want to install a module there is one for version 7. https://www.odoo.com/apps/7.0/web_keyboard_shortcuts/
Which will give you the following shortcuts:

  • Ctrl + S - For Save Current Object(Require:form in edit mode)
  • Ctrl + E - For Edit Current Object(Require:form in saved mode)
  • Ctrl + space - For Create New Record(Open Form).
  • Alt - In Form View Press Alt key and then press Access Key Passed from Button.
  • Ctrl + K - Switch to Kanban View.
  • Ctrl + L - Switch to List View.
  • Ctrl + ; - Switch to Form View.
  • Ctrl + F - Focus on Search view(Press This shortcut and start searching).
  • Ctrl + D - Disable search view (Hide search view).
  • Ctrl + > - Display Next Page(In Form View).
  • Ctrl + < - Display Previous Page(In Form View).
  • Ctrl + Backspace - Go in to on step back on breadcrumb (Example Sales Orders / SO007 / Invoice if you press this shortcut then you will come back at S0007).
  • Ctrl + Esc - For Discard Current Change (Effect Like press Discard Link)
  • Ctrl + ↓ (Down Arrow) - Expand lines(Need Group By in Tree View ).
  • Ctrl + ↑ (Up Arrow) - Collapse All lines(Need Group By in Tree View ).
  • Ctrl + 1 to Ctrl + 9 - Change Main Menu according to Number Pressed.
  • For Secondary Menu - Press Ctrl + ` (Key above Tab) and then press ↑ or ↓ for movement and then Press Enter
  • Ctrl + P - Give Screenshots of Tree Or Form Or Graph ( Without Menus ).
  • Ctrl + F11 - Enable Full Screen Mode.
  • Esc - Disable Full Screen Mode.

I don't think they are enabled by default though? I'll leave that part to somebody else. I can't find anything about shortcut keys without installing anything.

@pedro, Alt + Shift is a pain

With this module, Ctrl  is sufficient (v8 / v9)

 Thanks to whitecape

Well, for me Alt + Shift is a natural combination, and it works cleanly out of the box and following HTML standards. And AFAIK the combination can be changed at least in Firefox: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.generalAccessKey
