Keyboard Shortcuts for Server Manager

Published: June 24, 2013

Updated: June 24, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2



Because Server Manager was fully redesigned starting in Windows Server® 2012, keyboard shortcuts that worked in the Server Manager console in Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008 are not necessarily the same commands. This topic describes the new keyboard shortcuts and access keys for Server Manager in Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.

Commands that do not have their own keyboard shortcuts or access keys are accessible by pressing the Tab key, and tabbing through their control group when it is in focus.
