An access key (sometimes referred to as a keyboard shortcut or mnemonic) is a character in the text of a menu, menu item, or label of a control such as a button that invokes the associated menu function. For example, to provide a shortcut way to open the File menu (for which the access key is typically F), an element might have this attached property set to "ALT+F".
Silverlight is often hosted within a browser. The browser host might not report all possible key events to the Silverlight input system, often because the browser host might handle that key event itself. For details on this concept, see "Browser Hosts and Key Events" section of Keyboard Support.
For a list of the operating systems and browsers that are supported by Silverlight, see Supported Operating Systems and Browsers.
