The Best To-Do List Software for Windows: Instant relief from stress and overload, total control
Learning the keyboard shortcuts can greatly increase your productivity, but it is not necessary to learn these shortcuts in order to use Swift To-Do List.
As you keep using Swift To-Do List over time, you might want to learn some of the keyboard shortcuts for the operations that you do most frequently, to become more efficient.
If you are a new user, then feel free to ignore these shortcuts. You can learn them later - you will be able to easily recognize which of these can save you time then. But if you are a power user, or use keyboard a lot, then read on!
You can find this overview also in Swift To-Do List Help menu, labeled as Hotkey Overview.
There are always multiple ways how to accomplish most of the operations. You can accomplish nearly everything using either mouse or keyboard.
Tip: Swift To-Do List is mouse-wheel aware in most numeric and date controls, so you can often use mouse-wheel to set dates or numbers. This applies especially in the Add/Edit Task Window: eg. when setting Due Date, reminder date and time, Time Estimate or Percent Done (Professional edition only) and so on.

These hotkeys apply only when the task-view is selected. Let's begin with the keyboard hotkeys:

And mouse shortcuts:
These hotkeys work in all notes panels and also in memos. The date/time hotkeys also work in Task Name in Add/Edit task dialog and other text fields.
These hotkeys and shortcuts work in the reminder window. Reminder window is displayed when a reminder or recurrence notification is triggered. Each reminder has its own tab. Some of these hotkeys apply only when multiple reminders are shown at once.
These hotkeys and shortcuts work in the Add Task and Edit Task windows.

I just wanted to send you a quick note expressing how much I like Swift To-Do List. I have been using it for about a month. Its features are what I was hoping to get and easy to use. I have contacted you on a couple of occasions and the response has been immediate and relevant. Good job.Lawrence P, USA
