Keyboard Accessibility

Many of the commands available on the Menu bar can be assessed using keyboard keys rather than the mouse. This is done by using combination keys that map to particular menu options. Notice that each Menu bar option has a single letter underlined. Hold down the Alt key and type the underlined letter has the same effect as clicking on the menu option. For instance, typing the Alt+F keys will open the File menu shown below.

Menu Bar

Notice that within the menu option, some of the sub-options also have underlined letters. You can navigate further to these sub-options by simply pressing the underlined letter. For instance, within the File menu, you can open a page by pressing the O key followed by P.
