Press Tab followed by Space to mark a selected task as done without opening it.
When browsing through your tasks in the full window Calendar view or in the Tasks Panel or Calendar Panel, to mark a task as done, you can tick the box with a mouse click. But there’s also an easy way to do it when you have both hands on the keyboard.

To start the browser with the same tabs every time you open it:
