With nxqddb, certain actions have accelerator keys that
you can press instead of using the mouse to invoke the action.
Each menu selection in the menubar has
a letter that is underlined. This visual clue
lets you know that the selection has an accelerator
key defined by pressing(and holding) the ALT key
while pressing the key that is underlined.
For example, if you press the
<ALT-F> key, the
File pulldown menu will be displayed. Pressing
<ALT-E> key displays the Edit menu and so on.
Once the pulldown menu is displayed, you can also use
accelerators to launch a particular action on the menu
by pressing the
<ALT> key combination specified
to the right of the menu label.
