#841 – Display Underlines for Access Keys at All Times

Normally, the underline characters that are used to indicate access keys for controls are displayed only after you press the Alt key.

For example, before you press the Alt key, you won’t see any underlines:

841-001

But once you press the Alt key, you’ll see underlines indicating access keys for all controls:

841-002

 

You can, however, change a setting in the Control Panel so that the underlines are always visible.

In Control Panel, click on Ease of Access.  (Instructions below apply to Windows 8).

841-003

 

Click on Ease of Access Center.

841-004

 

Click on the Make the keyboard easier to use option.

841-005

 

Enable the option Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys.

841-006

 

The underlines indicating access keys will now be displayed immediately when you start your application.
