    Open menus like in in Windows
    In Windows one can use keyboard shortcuts to show a menu. For example, hitting Alt + F usually opens the file menu, and then you can use the arrow keys to select an item. Is there a way to do this on a mac? There are many things (specifically in Office) that don't have a keyboard shortcut.

    Whenever you want to do something that on a Wintendo machine would require you to hit control, hit command instead and alt should be option. Aside from that I think you'll find that the majority of the keyboard shortcuts are the same (and the Mac actually has more of them), 'cause where do you think Microsoft copied them from? :-D
