Introduction to Tally Shortcuts in Tally ERP 9

Do you know that you can use entire Tally with just a keyboard?
You do not require a mouse if you know Tally well. Same is with Excel also.

When you have a certain mastery over Tally, you can easily run it with just the keyboard and that feeling is like eating an ice cream.

You just have to enjoy the taste of ice cream and it automatically melts in your mouth.
Similarly, you just have to know the tally shortcuts and it automatically works for you.

Tally shortcut keys can be considered as a frame of Tally.
Suppose, if Tally is your body, then all of the tally shortcuts forms your skeleton.

Now, let us move ahead and see what are the different types of tally shortcuts in Tally ERP 9.

Different Types of Tally Shortcuts – Tally ERP 9

Broadly, there are 2 types of tally shortcuts in Tally ERP 9. They are:

  1. Functional tally shortcut keys – using F1 to F12 at different screens in Tally
  2. Alphabetical tally shortcut keys – using letters on keyboard and red coloured tally keys

Let’s start with the first one which are functional tally shortcut keys.

Functional Tally Shortcut Keys in Tally ERP 9

Most of you know the functional tally shortcuts because they are very much visible when you use Tally.
You cannot ignore them.

Functional tally shortcut keys are from F1 to F12. And, there is no F13 in your keyboard also. 😉
You just looked at your keyboard to see if there is no F13, right? It’s okay.

Everywhere in Tally, you can see a dark green coloured bar on the right hand side of the screen and that is where all the functional tally shortcuts are located.

"Functional

Look at the image above in which I am in Accounting Vouchers in Tally which you can go to from Gateway of Tally.

You can see all the tally shortcuts along with the name of the function it will do.

You can use mouse and click on each of the buttons but if you know the tally shortcuts, you can simply press the button on your keyboard and that’s it.

From the above image, if you press F4, you will directly be in Contra Voucher in Tally.

On the other hand, if you had used the mouse, you will have to put your hand on your mouse and click on the button which says Contra.

Now, there are two things which come into play here.

Firstly, if you know the tally shortcut key i.e. F4 for contra voucher, you can just press it and you do not have to locate it like you do in mouse.

Secondly, if you observe, the background colour of the contra voucher in Tally is white.

So, even without looking at your keyboard, you can press F4 and if the screen turns white, you know you are in the contra voucher.

Both of the above things save a lot of time for you when you use tally.

Now, if you see the tally shortcuts on the right hand side green bar, there are 4 types of functional tally shortcut keys. They are:

  1. Grey tally shortcut keys
  2. Normal tally shortcut keys
  3. Double Underline tally shortcut keys
  4. Single Underline tally shortcut keys

"4

Grey Tally Shortcut Keys

A grey coloured tally shortcut key means two things.

"Grey

  • Firstly, if a particular option is not available then the tally shortcut key will be in grey colour.

See the fifth option from the above image, it is Company. It is grey because it is not available in accounting vouchers.
It is only available at gateway of tally.

  • Secondly, if you are already in a menu, that option automatically gets disabled because you cannot access the option as you are already in it right now.

For example, if you look in the above image, the grey tally shortcut key that I have marked is Accounting Vouchers.

We are already in accounting vouchers and that is why it is grey.

These were the grey tally shortcuts. Now, let us move on to other tally shortcut keys.

Normal Tally Shortcut Keys

"Normal

Normal tally shortcut keys are the keys which are available and you can use them just by pressing the letters on them.

For example, F8 i.e. Sales is a normal tally shortcut key which I have marked in the above image.

You can just press F8 and you will be directly in the sales voucher in tally where you can even pass GST sales entries in tally and all the other kinds of sales entries also.

Double Underline Tally Shortcut Keys

"Double

The shortcut key for debit note in tally is F9 and you can check it in the picture above as I have marked it.

Did you notice the double underline under the letters F9? There is a reason for that.

It is because, in entire tally, if you see a shortcut key with double underline, you have to press CTRL along with that key to use the shortcut.

So, if you want to go to debit note voucher in tally, you need to press CTRL + F9 together.

Look at the top left of the image and you will see the option of Support Centre which has a shortcut of H with double underlines.

It means you can go to the support centre in tally by pressing CTRL + H.

Single Underline Tally Shortcut Keys

Just like the double underline tally shortcut keys in tally, there are single underline tally shortcut keys also.

The only difference is when you have single underline for any tally shortcut key, you have to press ALT + that tally shortcut key.

Single Underline Tally Shortcut Key - Tally ERP 9
Single Underline Tally Shortcut Key – Tally ERP 9

In the above image, if you want to use the tally shortcut for Stat Payment which is used for GST payment vouchers in Tally, you need to use ALT + S.

S is the shortcut for Stat Payment when you are in Accounting Vouchers in Tally and single underline under the letter means that you have to press ALT + S.

These were the functional tally shortcut keys in tally. Now we are going to look at alphabetical tally shortcut keys.

Although, if you have noticed, we have already seen some of the alphabetical tally shortcuts above. Like ALT + S for Stat Payment in tally or CTRL + H for Support Centre in Tally.

Let’s go ahead.

Alphabetical Tally Shortcut Keys in Tally ERP 9

Alphabetical tally shortcuts are the most used tally shortcuts in Tally ERP 9 because they are everywhere.

If you have a look at the Gateway of Tally, you will see different options like accounting vouchers, inventory vouchers, banking, balance sheet and so on.

Look at the picture below.

"Alphabetical

Look at the first option called Accounts Info. What do you notice?

Do you see the red coloured A in bold in the option of Accounts Info?
It is the shortcut for Accounts Info in Tally.

In the same way, you can see the alphabets turning red when you move onto different options in Tally. You can clearly see that in the image above.

Similarly, for every option in Gateway of Tally, there is a red coloured tally shortcut which you can use to move in tally like a bullet train.

For example, if you want to create a ledger in Tally, then you have to press ALC one by one.
Try it now and see for yourself.

If you press ALC one by one at a great speed, you can do the work in tally at that speed.

If you press DOG in the same way, you will be in GST Reports in Tally where you can find GSTR 1 in Tally.

Many people don’t know about these shortcuts but they are very important and you should start using it.

These red coloured tally shortcuts are very important and useful because you do not have to use up and down arrow keys once you know these tally shortcuts.

I have explained the entire methodology on how to use these tally shortcuts in the video below.

I promise you that after watching this video, you will not see Tally in the same way as before.

Creation Tally Shortcut Keys in Tally ERP 9

Now, I am going to list down the shortcuts that can help you navigate in all the creation screens in Tally.

If you are in the ledger creation menu in tally, you can easily jump in between the different creation screens in tally.

Look at the image below and you will understand everything.

"Creation

Look at the top right corner in which you can see the words Ledger Creation which means this screen is the ledger creation screen in tally.

Now, look at the second arrow – which are creation tally shortcuts and they are used to go from one creation screen to another in tally.

That is the reason I call them creation tally shortcuts. Here is the list of all the creation tally shortcuts in Tally ERP 9.

Tally Shortcut KeysTally Shortcut Functionality
CTRL + BTo go to the Budget Creation Screen in Tally.

Now, you will be seeing some tally shortcuts which are inside the Unit Creation Screen in tally and they change the functions because the screen has changed in Tally.

They are specifically used for inventory shortcuts in tally. Look at the picture below and you will instantly know what I am talking about.

"Inventory

Now we will look at the tally shortcuts which are very powerful if used and can literally save your time by at least 5 times in tally.
