Although Windows was designed to be used with a mouse, you can also navigate and command the computer from the keyboard. Following are most of the keyboard options.
Keyboarding the MenusAll menus are selectable by pressing the Alt key and the "underlined" letter of the menu title. For example, Alt-F for File menu is universal.All menu options are also selectable by pressing the underlined letter in their name. Most of the time, it is the first letter. However, if two menu options start with the same letter, one of them will use a letter in the middle of the name as a keyboard command.
