Using tab key to move around on a field page on a Mac

Hello,

I was wondering how you use what is normally the Tab key on a PC for moving to different fields on a field document, but how do you do this on a Mac?

Hello there!

Navigating around fields on a Mac is actually just about identical to how you do it on a PC - the 'Tab' key should work the same as what you are used to.

However, by default, hitting the tab key will go to "Text boxes and lists only", as opposed to "All controls", so this level of tabbing may be what you are looking for!  To enable this, try following these steps:

  1. Click on the blue Apple menu, at the top-left of your display.
  2. Click on "System Preferences" (basically this is the equivalent of the Control Panel on the PC).
  3. Click on the icon for "Keyboard & Mouse" in the System Preferences panel.
  4. Click on the "Keyboard Shortcuts" tab.
  5. In the bottom of this pane, you'll see two radio buttons you can choose from for tab behavior.  It is probably set to "Text boxes and lists only"... try switching it over to "All controls", and see if this suits you better.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Sign in on toshiba moves to start but arrow disappears so it wont work


If the cursor highlight is positioned over the START button (icon) then you can select it by pressing ENTER or SPACE bar, which is the keyboard equivalent of double clicking with the mouse. To move between the fields, press the TAB key (shift TAB to go backwards or to the previously selected field).

However, the question is not clearly stated...

The Tab key moves from field to field and the arrow keys move thru items inside the fields.The enter key executes command in the field. So Tab to user icon or password field type in password if needed and hit enter.

Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close.

I can't login via telnet on my SRW2008 Instead of the normal sreen (with only User Name/Paswoord) I get this menu and when I give User/Password and press Enter it just toggles between User en Password...


The 'TAB' key on your keyboard should move the cursor from one field to the next. On the 'Edit/Execute' field, press the 'SPACEBAR' key to rotate through all the options within a field, e.g., "yes" or "no", and press the 'ENTER' key to select from one of the options. In the 'ID' or 'PASSWORD' field, press 'ENTER' to move on to the next screen.

Hi running word 2003 have an auto fill in the date feature installed on a fax template how do I disable it. if I open up previous documents composed the present date populates yet the document was composed...


This is caused by the document using a "field" and not an actual date. Press <ALT+F9> to see the date's field code. You will probably see: { DATE } or { DATE @ "M/d/yyyy" } (NOTE: The M/d/yyyy formatting may be different for you; since this is personal choice). You can manually delete the field and type in your date. To automate this, open the TEMPLATE (*.DOT) and change the field by using: Insert > Field... and selecting "CreateDate" from the Field names list. Also - set your desired format too and then click <OK>. Save the change to your template and it will use the date you create the fax and keep that date if the fax is saved as a document and reopened in the future.
