Function Key Combination

The shortcut keys appear in button names in the button bar (right
side of the Tally screen). You can either click the button from the
button bar or press the relevant function key or character
underlined/double-underlined.
The buttons have a function key before the button names ( Eg: F1:
Select Cmp) which means you need to press F1 key (Function Key)
to select the 'Select Company' screen
The buttons have an underlined character ( Eg: F3:Cmp Info), which
means you need to press ALT + F3 to select the 'Company Info'
screen.
Some buttons have a double-underlined character (Eg: As Voucher)
which means you need to press CTRL + V to select the 'Voucher' in
voucher mode.
