Menu Shortcuts

Menu items that appear dimmed are unavailable. They are available only under certain conditions.

An underlined character in a menu name or item is called a mnemonic. The sequence of keys listed to the right of some menu items is called a shortcut key.

Mnemonics and shortcut keys provide quick keyboard access to menu items.

To choose an item from a pull-down menu using the menu's mnemonics:

  1. Hold down Alt and press the underlined letter in the menu's name.

  2. Press the underlined letter in the menu item's name.
