Netscape 7 Keyboard Shortcuts

Netscape allows you to use the keyboard instead of the mouse to perform many commands. Using the keyboard to perform a command can often save time, and those with physical, vision, and hearing challenges can also take advantage of shortcuts to help them use Netscape.

Using Shortcuts

This document uses the following format for listing shortcuts:

Example:

Command
Windows
Mac
Linux
Copy
Ctrl+C
Cmd+C
Ctrl+C

To perform a command, press the buttons listed together at the same time. For example, to copy in Windows, press Ctrl and C at the same time.

Tip: The plus sign (+) means that you must press two keys surrounding the plus sign at the same time. If there is more than one plus sign (such as Ctrl+Shift+C), it means that all three buttons surrounding the plus sign must be pressed at the same time.

Abbreviations:

  • Ctrl = Control key
  • Cmd = Command key on the Macintosh keyboard

Note: Some keyboard shortcuts perform different functions based on cursor location (focus). For example, if you press Home on Windows while viewing a web page, Netscape will move to the top of the web page. However, if you press Home on Windows while the cursor is in a text field, the cursor will go to the beginning of the text field.

Tip: On Windows and Linux, you can use the keyboard to access menu options. To open a top-level menu, press Alt and the underlined letter in the menu name. After opening a menu, you can open submenus or commands without pressing Alt. For example, you can press Alt+F to open the File menu.
