I love my keyboard; why did they hide “Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys” in Windows 8 and 7 so far away?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/22

Despite the radically different first look, lot’s of Windows 8 is the same as in Windows 7

So this Windows 7 trick works just as well in Windows 8:

This is how you get the underline character to show for Alt and other keyboard shortcuts in Windows 7 (the link shows you how to do this with the mouse, but we are keyboard lovers, are’t we?):

  1. Press the WINDOWS-U combination to open the “Ease of Access Center”
  2. Under Explore all settings, select “Make the keyboard easier to use” by pressing TAB a couple of times, then press ENTER to select it.
  3. Press ALT-N to select and check “Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys” under ”Make it easier to use keyboard shortcuts”
  4. Press ALT-O to fire the OK button action.
  5. Press ALT-F4 to close the “Ease of Access Center”

Done!
