1 NOTES Keyboard Shortcuts Instead of the Mouse Tape 1 --4:00 RADAR is a windows based product. As such, it is designed to operate with a mouse. However, you can also use the keyboard to activate the commands in RADAR. If you are comfortable and familiar with a computer keyboard, you may find it is more efficient as you can keep your hands on the keyboard rather than moving your hands back and forth between the keyboard and the mouse. Alt and the Underlined Letter, Escape and Enter keys Look closely at the RADAR menu at the top of the screen and you will notice th at in each word on the menu there is an underlined letter. This indicates which letter on the keyboard must be pressed, in combination with the Alt key, to activate the desired menu selection without using the mouse. Underlined Letter Page 10
