You don't have to abandon the keyboard and pick up the mouse to select a radio button or a check box — use this simple keyboard trick instead.
- Tab into the option group just as you would any other control.
- Once the option group has focus, don't reach for your mouse. Instead, use the right or left arrow keys to cycle though the options. The arrow keys also select the options — no clicking required.
- Then, tab on to the next control.
