With PC, alt-something opens the something in the main menu. Does Mac have similar function? For example, is there a way to open View menu as if I click it?
Try CtrlF2 - that should highlight the Apple-symbol on the main menubar.
edit: The cursor keys and Enter then allow you to navigate, drill-down and ultimately select an item - just as you can on Windows.
also - can't claim credit for this, I learnt it here on the site! What are your favorite Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts?
There are two approaches to try: Control ^F2 or Command ⌘Shift ⇧Slash /
Advantages compared of both solution:
|Command ⌘Shift ⇧Slash /
|Starts on menu side
|Starts on menu item
|Menu state is
|Hand to use
|Closer to arrow keys
|One hand operation
Personally I prefer the second solution since it is closer to navigation arrow keys →←↑↓ and the menu is already opened and only one hand, ie. right hand ☜ is involved into the operation.
Note: Some menu options are altered while holding the Option ⌥ key!
