Keyboard shortcuts

You can use a keyboard shortcut 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.

tip noteTip

On a menu, you can identify a keyboard shortcut by looking at the shortcut that appears next to 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.
