Navigating Get Data With Keyboard Controls
You can use keyboard commands to navigate through the initial Get Data page, so that all options can be performed from the keyboard without requiring a mouse, using a combination of the Tab key, Shift+Tab key, and arrow key actions. Pressing the Enter key performs the primary action of the selected element. Pressing the Esc key closes a panel.
You can jump to areas of the page that are not near each other by pressing the key combination Shift+Ctrl+F10. This opens an accessible context menu, as shown in the following image.
You can scroll through the context menu using the Up arrow and Down arrow keys. Press the Enter key to jump to the selected area. Upload Data takes you to the first tile in the LOCAL FILES area. Connect to Data takes you to the first tile in the SERVER FILES area.
