Navigating without mouse

By steve.doig ·
I'm having problems with my mouse and trying
to navigate windows with my keyboard.

Under help, entering Automatic skip driver
leaves a screen with two column panes; the
left with the search query word and related
topics, and the other column with the
description of the topic.

I need to move the focus from the navigation
pane on left to the description pane on the
right using ALT, arrows, ctrl, etc. so I can
select a hyperlink: "Click here to start
Automatic Skip Driver"

Any takers on how to select the hyperlink,
noting you can click alt+enter.
and "Jump to url..." in the File menu.

I want to stop windows skipping the driver
for COM1 so I can use a serial mouse.

To move to the right pane of help, you have to close the left pane. Otherwise, the only way to access the right pane is by clicking the mouse inside it.

Follow this:
Press Alt-O for Options. Press the letter T for Hide Tabs. The left pane with tabs disappears and now you can navigate through the links by press the TAB key. Press Enter to select the highlighted link or the focus of your TAB key.

To display the left pane again to access the tabs for Index and Search, press Alt-O again and press the letter T.

Enjoy!

Type "F6"

That's it.... You'll be navigating the right pane. "F6" again and your back on the left side. I had to figure that one out once also.
