Tips & Tricks

When you open a menu or My Computer window in XP, you can see what shortcut keys are available by pressing [Alt] once – underlined letters will appear, and pressing that letter will trigger the appropriate shortcut, whether it’s ticking a box or selecting a button.
You can make these underlined letters appear automatically from the ‘Appearance’ tab under the ‘Desktop’ control panel. Click the ‘Effects’ button and remove the tick next to the box marked ‘Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key’. Click ‘OK’ twice.
