AnÂ access keyÂ is an underlined character in the text of a menu, context menu item, or the label of a control such as a button.
You can press and hold theÂ Shift,Â Alt, orÂ F10Â key while you right click on an item to see available access keys underlined in the context menu. You can then press the underlined letter (access key) as a keyboard shortcut to use/open that menu item.
If you like, you can turn on to always have access keys underlined even when not holdingÂ Shift,Â Alt, orÂ F10Â key while you right click to open a context menu.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off always underline access keys for your account in Windows 11.
