About Access keys and Hot keys

An Access Key is an Alt key combination that moves focus to a specified field on the current page. For example, Alt \ moves focus to first button on the Toolbar. Then pressing the Enter key would invoke that action. Or, you may use the Tab key to move you to the next Toolbar button.

A Hot Key performs an immediate action. For example, when focus is in a field that has lookup processing, Alt 5 invokes the Lookup page without having to press the Enter key.
