Keyboard Shortcuts

See All PEP-Web Help Topics

Keyboard shortcuts are intended to make PEP-Web easy for all. Only one key needs to be pressed at a time, in a short sequence. They work for power users, hunt and peck typists, and those using assistive technologies.

General Instructions

Press the Group Key, followed by one of the feature related keys. For example, to go to the Search screen, enter Q followed by S. If you press Esc first, it will ensure your keyboard context is not in a text or other entry field which would otherwise take the keystrokes.
