Hi there,

I'm a recent switcher and wondered if anyone knew the answer to this:

When I'm given an option window (eg. Save or Cancel) one of the options is always blue and is the selected option. Is there a way of toggling the selected option using the keyboard? I've tried the arrow keys but they don't do anything. Not a major problem but if it's possible - I'll use it.


QUOTE Thanks

Made this thread a while ago:

How to use the keyboard to select buttons in dialogs (e.g., Don't Save/Cancel/Save)

Hope that helps. ;p
