Keyboard shortcuts

A keyboard shortcut allows you to select a menu command or perform an action in Microsoft Expression Web by pressing one or more keys on your keyboard instead of using the mouse. For example, to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, press CTRL+K.

In a menu, you can identify a keyboard shortcut by looking at the shortcut that appears to the right of the menu command. For example, on the File menu, next to Open, the shortcut is CTRL+O. For a toolbar button, you can identify a keyboard shortcut by looking at the ScreenTip.
