The TAB Key

The TAB key is designed to make keyboard navigation faster and easier. It also serves one vital function. When the mouse hardware device dies, you need a means of menu navigation until you are able to troubleshoot the mouse or buy a new one. This is where the TAB key comes in.

We can go from icon to icon or menu selections. Each time the TAB key is pressed you will see each icon highlighted. Each time you press the TAB key you will jump to the next icon or menu item. Just keep jumping until you get to where you want and use the Enter key to select the item.

Notice that the Yes button has dots around the button (box) this means you are currently in the highlighted button (box) and can click or use the enter key to select. If the TAB key is used, you will jump to the No button and back and forth with the TAB key until a selection is made.
