SCOM 2012: shortcut tip


NOTE: This blogpost is part of a series of tips and tricks. You can find more tips and tricks on the central blogpost located here;

Just a small shortcut tip this time.

As part of the unified console the shortcuts to the tabs in scom have been included in the SCOM 2012 console.

I find this personally particularly handy when you want to switch between the different tabs while browsing through the console.

CAUTION: You’ll need access to the tabs to be able to open them.

So just pressing CTRL + a number will open the tab.

TIP: If you don’t know the exact number there’s always a way to get it by hovering over the specific tab. SNAG-0128

No point in using the shortcut when you hover over the tab but you might remember it the next time and save yourself that nanosecond of valuable SCOM time Smile


CTRL+ 1: SNAG-0129

CTRL+ 2:SNAG-0130

CTRL+ 3: SNAG-0131

CTRL +4: SNAG-0132

CTRL +5: SNAG-0133


Stay tuned for more tips and tricks in the series.
