Hi itman, welcome to the forum.
Frankly, we need some more specific information as to what you're trying to accomplish because your description isn't very clear.
If you are referring to shortcuts that are displayed as underlined letters on items in a menu, then this information may solve your problem. Once you've enabled the 'underlined letter shortcut' you can use it anytime you see an underlined letter in any toolbar and/or menu item.
KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS – UNDERLINED LETTER
Open Control Panel, go to the Ease of Access Center, select: Make the Keyboard easier to use. Go to this option at the bottom of the window: "Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys."
Or, manually use the ALT key:
1. Put your cursor in a Toolbar and press Alt. The shortcut letters become underlined.
2. When you press ALT in a program with Menus, one letter in each of the Menu names becomes underlined. Press an underlined letter to open the corresponding Menu. Press the underlined letter in a menu item to choose that command.
