Alt Key Menu Letters

Posted By On October 12, 2005 @ 3:35 PM In Shortcuts & Keyboard Tricks | Comments Disabled


In just about every program you use, you may have noticed that the toolbar at the top (the one with File, Edit, View, etc.) has underlined letters. The “F” in File has a little underline the “V” in View and so on…

Like this:

Well, if you press your Alt key and a corresponding letter…

For example: Alt+T

Poof! The Tools menu opens! So press Alt+F for file, Alt+E for Edit, Alt+V for view – anything with an underlined letter should work.

I like this method, because after the menu opens I can use the arrow keys to move and select what I want!

Give it a try today!
