SCOM 2012 - Console Keyboard Shortcuts

A nice feature of System Center 2012 Operations Manager (SCOM) is the keyboard shortcuts available to help you quickly navigate your way around the console.

Edit: It has been pointed out to me (by people who've had their hands on the RTM bits a lot longer than I have..cough, Damian!), that this new keyboard shortcut feature is a standard part of the Unified Console Experience on all of the new System Center 2012 products (RTM of course) -nice!

If you find yourself using the console and want to quickly switch between tabs on the wunderbar, Microsoft have provided us with five keyboard shortcuts that can help you to change between tabs. These shortcuts require simply holding down the CTRL key and pressing any number between 1 and 5 to get to the view you want.

The screens below show the different shortcuts and the tabs they take you to and if you hover the mouse pointer over any of these tabs, you will see a flashout window appear with a description of the shortcut

Just another neat feature added to the new 2012 interface that I thought was worth sharing!

    this standard is part of the unified console experience over the complete suite :)
