How to use access keys

Access keys work slightly differently depending on which browser and type of computer you are using - this is a summary of the main different ways:

  • If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 on a PC, press 'alt' and the access key character at same time
  • If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 on a PC, press 'alt' and the access key character at the same time, then press the enter key
  • If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 on an Apple Macintosh, press 'control' and the access key character at the same time
  • This accessibility initiative is also supported by Netscape 6; use the 'alt' key on a PC, or the 'ctrl' key on an Apple Macintosh
