OS X menu keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl-F2 and Shift-Command-?

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/04

So I don’t forget:

Often, Ctrl-F2 (^-F2) fails to show the menu, but ⇧ ⌘ ? (shift+command+/) works all the time.

You can navigate the menus in the menu bar without using a mouse or trackpad. To put the focus in the menu bar, press Control-F2 (Fn-Control-F2 on portable keyboards). Then use the key combinations listed below.

Left Arrow and Right Arrow Move from menu to menu
Return Open a selected menu
Up Arrow and Down Arrow Move to menu items in the selected menu
Type the menu item’s name Jump to a menu item in the selected menu
Return Select a menu item
