Microsoft Project - Keyboard Shortcuts
Microsoft Project - Ribbon KeyTips
To activate KeyTips press the ALT key. The KeyTips are displayed over each feature that is available in the current view. Press the letter that appears in the KeyTips over the feature that is needed. Depending on which letter you press, additional KeyTips may appear.This is a great feature to know and understand if you travel or work in a confined space and can’t really use the mouse or device for moving the cursor. Moving around Microsoft® Project 2010 can be very made much easier knowing how to use KeyTips.
For example, if the Task tab is active and you press W, the View tab will be displayed, along with the KeyTips for the groups on that tab.
Continue pressing letters until you press the letter of the command or control that you want to use. In some cases, you must first press the letter of the group that contains the command.
To cancel the action that you are taking and hide the KeyTips, press the ALT key.
