Accesskeys

The LIST OF ACCESS KEYS Information Window displays all Access Keys that are available for the page in the browser window. The visibility of the columns can be turned on and off by selecting the Column Selection Icon at the very right of the Column Headers. A checkmark next to an item means that column is visible. To hide a column, select the column name. When no checkmark is next to the item, the column will be hidden.
