For the first blog, I wanted share some tips for using just your keyboard to get around Windows Vista. I'm focusing on using the fundamental components of Windows Vista - the parts that appear the first time you log on. I'll break these into 3 parts: 1) moving around the main components, 2) moving around the Start menu, and 3) using the Start menu Search feature. I'll be describing where the components are located because that detail can be helpful for people using a screen reader and for people with vision difficulties.
(By the way, one of the keys you'll need to locate is the Windows logo key. It is on the bottom row of keys, next to Ctrl and Alt.)
Moving around components that are first launched with Windows Vista:
Moving around the Start Menu:
Using the Start Menu Search:
Hope that helps you get up and running with Windows Vista via the keyboard.
