This is a quick but guaranteed way to make you more productive when working with Azure!
In Azure Portal, you have a select number of handy shortcuts. No need to move your hands away from the keyboard to command that mouse cursor!
The five most useful ones that I use each day are:
- Navigate to All Resources:
hold down G and press A
- Navigate to Resource Groups:
hold down G and press R
- Create a new resource:
hold down G and press N
- Go to All Services:
hold down G and press B
- Go to a specific service pinned in shortcuts:
hold down G and press a number– very useful to hop between Azure AD, Microsoft Sentinel, and Azure Monitor, for example!
There are a few others, but I rarely rely on them. See the full list here.
