About Keyboard Access Tips

Alan Cantor's Keyboard Access Tips is a book for people who want to operate Windows® more efficiently by using the keyboard more effectively. It is not a list of hotkeys. Instead, the book describes techniques that work in all contexts, and that allow you to discover specific hotkeys as you need them. Most of these techniques are poorly-documented; many are undocumented.
