Menu access keys

Expression Studio 2.0

An access key gives you access to a command by pressing a specific key on the keyboard. Access keys appear on the menu by displaying the underscore character under the shortcut letter. For example, the shortcut letter for the File menu is F. To use access keys, first press ALT or F10 to highlight the specific menu or dialog box, press the corresponding letter of the specific menu or dialog box, and then press the TAB key to navigate through the menu or dialog box. Alternatively, you can use the arrow keys to navigate through menus, or you can press the specific access key for the menu or command that you want to access.
