MOVING AROUND WITH THE MOUSE
There are three different types of selectors in the Wiley CPA Examination Review 12.0 program: Menus, Menu Options, and Buttons. Each is selected differently.
To select a Menu from a menu bar (e.g., File Menu) move the mouse so that the pointer is positioned on the desired menu and click the left button on the mouse. This will pull down the menu and display the menu options.
To select a Menu Option (e.g., Print from the File Menu) move the mouse so that the pointer is posi- tioned on the desired option and click the left button on the mouse to execute.
To select a Button, move the mouse pointer to the desired button and click the left button on the mouse. This will select and execute the button.
To position the cursor in an Entry or Edit field, move the mouse so that the pointer is on the desired field and click the left mouse button. The cursor will position itself in the entry field and you may begin typing.
MOVING AROUND WITH THE KEYBOARD
There are four different types of selectors in the Wiley CPA Exam program: Menus, Menu Options, Hot Keys, and Buttons. Each is selected differently. There are two ways to select a Menu from the Menu Bar (e.g., File Menu):
One way is to press ALT and the underscored letter of the command name (i.e., ALT and F for the File Menu). This will pull down the Menu and display the Menu Options.
Press the ALT key and use the left and right arrow keys to highlight the appropriate menu com- mand (i.e., File, Edit, View, Search, Help) and Enter to display the Menu Options.
To select a Menu Option (e.g., Print from the File Menu), use the arrow keys to highlight the desired option and Enter to execute. The Spacebar may also be used to execute a selected option.
Tip: Type the underscored letter of the option to execute that option.
To activate a Hot Key, press Ctrl and the letter indicated (e.g., Ctrl and S for Save As). Or use the Tab key to highlight the desired button and Enter to execute.
Tip: Press the Ctrl key and the letter “S” simultaneously to execute Save As.
