Turning on the Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys feature can make keyboard shortcuts and access keys easier to see. For example, the Edit menu in the Internet Explorer Menu Bar can be opened at any time by pressing the ALT + E keys. When the Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys feature is enabled, the E in the Edit menu is underlined, providing a visual reminder of which key to use. To open Edit or any other menu, press the ALT key while pressing the underlined key.

When the Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys feature is enabled, radio buttons and check boxes can be selected, or the selection removed, by pressing the ALT and the underlined keys at the same time. For example, in the Narrator preferences window, the K in Echo User's Keystrokes setting is underlined. To select the check box for Echo User's Keystrokes, press the ALT + K keys.
