Keyboard Shortcuts in Lists

The following table describes the keyboard shortcuts that you can use in a list page. The shortcut action is slightly different depending on whether the page is shown in the list view or tile view.

Most of the shortcuts are the same no matter whether the operating system is Windows or macOS; however, there are some shortcuts that are different for macOS than Windows. These are indicated in parentheses in the table as well.

Note: In the table that follows, the term actionable field refers to a field on which you can do something, like change a value or link to another page. In general, the shortcuts will skip over fields that display information that you cannot change from the list (in other words, fields that are read-only).
