-For much faster navigation and formatting you can use access keys in [[DokuWiki]]. **Unfortunately** how they work depends on your Browser and Operating System. Usually you hit ''ALT'' and the Key. On the Macintosh it's ''CTRL'' and the Key. In Opera, because it already uses extensive keyboard navigation (and to stop pages hijacking user-specified key mappings), you need to enable access key mode using  ''Shift'' and ''ESC'' first before you can hit them directly. In some browsers using the access key only sets the focus and you have to hit ''Enter'' after using it.+For much faster navigation and formatting you can use access keys in [[DokuWiki]]. **Unfortunately** how they work depends on your Browser and Operating System.

-**Hint**: in Opera 8.51 you must press ''SHIFT + ESC'' then press the //Accesskey// and then press ''ENTER'' for all accesskeys other then ''H'' and ''F''. In [[http://www.opera.com|Opera]] 9.0 things gets a little bit easier: press ''SHIFT + ESC'', then press the //Accesskey// 
  
-**Hint**: [[http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/|Firefox 2]] uses ''ALT + Shift + Key'' to avoid conflicts with built-in browser access keys. To restore old behaviour on Windows, type ''about:config'' in address bar, find ui.key.contentAccess property and set it to **4** +See also [[wp>Access key]] or [[wp>Wikipedia:Keyboard_shortcuts|how Wikipedia]] use them.

-In Mozilla based browsers the modificator key for the browser UI and the HTML access keys can be configured through the [[http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.generalAccessKey|ui.key.generalAccessKey]][[http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.chromeAccess|ui.key.chromeAccess]] and [[http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.contentAccess|ui.key.contentAccess]] config options. Linux Users might want to use the otherwise unused "Windows key" as access key modificator by setting ''ui.key.contentAccess'' to ''8''.+
