Shortcut Keys

The default Shortcut Keys are displayed below but can be changed to either an arrow key or a key of the user's choice. Available keyboard shortcuts are listed below:

  • Student Search/Get ( Ctrl + Alt + G )
  • Next Student/Forward ( Ctrl + Alt + F )
  • Previous Student/Back ( Ctrl + Alt + B )
  • First Student ( Ctrl + Alt + 1 )
  • Last Student ( Ctrl + Alt + 9 )

Users may also check the use arrow key checkbox next to each shortcut if they prefer to use the arrow keys. Note: Arrow keys are not compatible with all web browsers or computers. It is common for some computers to reserve ctrl + alt + arrow hot keys to rotate the monitor. If you wish to use the arrow keys with Aeries, you must first disable these hotkeys.
