The keyboard has several keys used in everyday navigation. They are the Ctrl (control) key, the Alt (alternate) key and the Del (delete) key.
The delete key is found in more than one place on the standard keyboard. We also use the Backspace, Shift and Tab keys. The arrow keys çêèéfound next to the number keys to the left of the main keyboard area are also used for navigation, and make traversing the CDI Operating Systems easier.
While some CDIs require that you type in commands on a virtually-blank screen with a command prompt, some features accessible only by CDI can be reached by a text-based menu that tells you which keys to use to navigate through the choices on the screen. For example in the Core portion of the A+ studies we used the plus + and minus - and Page Up/Page Down keys to navigate the BIOS menus.
Table 4 provides a summary of the basic shortcut keys and their functions.
