You can use either the mouse or the keyboard to navigate through the Collect! program.


Your keyboard has sets of keys which are used for different purposes.

Normal keys - These keys act just like a typewriter entering alphabetic and numeric characters and punctuation marks.

Extended keys - Extended keys include the ALT and CTRL keys, which provide another set of meanings to your keyboard. For example, the Alt+H key combination pulls down the Help menu.

Function keys - A set of keys labeled F1 to F10 or F12 is on your keyboard to provide rapid access to commonly used functions.

Direction keys - Direction keys include the arrows, Page Up and Page Down and Home and End. These keys can move your cursor.

For a complete list of the key combinations and their uses, please refer to Help topic, Keyboard Tips.
