The Icon Bar (QuickBooks 2012 and previously) and Shortcuts (in 2013) is a uniquely customizable spot to help you work a minor more quickly. Many of our clientele did not comprehend you could include and consider icons away from this area to help you accessibility the places you use the most. Here is a rapid lesson on how to make the most of your icon bar.
For the most part you are able to include icons utilizing the “Personalize Icon Bar” or “Customise Shortcuts” features in that area. However not all places and transaction varieties are detailed in this segment (we’ll tackle this subsequent). The best way to get to this customization display is to area your cursor in the Icon Bar/Shortcuts and Appropriate Click. In computer icons and previously version there is also a double arrow on the significantly appropriate of that bar that you can use to access this spot as well. As soon as in the Personalize Icon Bar display screen you can incorporate new, edit a label or icon or delete pointless icons.
To insert new icons:
• Select Include
• Scroll on the remaining for an location or transaction you would like to incorporate
• In the middle section, the default icon for this region will have a box encompassing it. You can make an alternate choice if you would like
• On the right the default Label and Description will look. This can be altered as well
• When you have make your alternatives click Alright
If you want to transfer icons up/down (2013) or left/appropriate (2012..) click on the diamond to the remaining of the icon and reorder. This is the very same as other record things in QuickBooks software program
To delete icons basically highlight that area and simply click delete.
Now for the things that is not outlined in the Personalize display. Open up the window for the transaction or spot you would like to add to your Icon Bar. A single concept is the Calendar. For some explanation this spot is included on the icon bar when you 1st start a new business but not offered to insert in the customization area if it had been mistakenly deleted.
For this example let us open the Calendar from the Business Menu
From the Check out Menu decide on Insert “Calendar” to Icon Bar
Once this is carried out you will have obtain to it in the Customization area to modify it’s place and/or label.
Be aware: The new 2013 person interface functions in the very same way as the older versions so will not be baffled by the phrase “My Shortcuts” when viewing the icon bar on the remaining of the display. In addition if you preserve the icon bar in this region you will not be in a position include separators or icons only as you would if you moved it back to the prime of the display. Seen that area is grayed out in the photograph over.
