Keyboard shortcuts (access keys)

For improved accessibility, access keys are defined for the main navigation menu and quick links to popular destinations in the site.

Support for and the behavior of tab order and access keys varies by browser software.

Tab order

On any page, skip navigation is first in the tab order, meaning that you can use the tab key and then the enter key to take your focus to the main content of the page. The 3rd and 4th in the tab order are for the Home page.
