Instead of an SAP icon button, you can use a keyboard shortcut. A keyboard shortcut is a key or combination of keys that you can use to access icon button functions while you are working in SAP. On a PC, the icon name and keyboard shortcut are displayed when you place the mouse over the icon. Note: Keyboard shortcuts may be different for the same icon depending upon the SAP screen you are in. MAC Note: The Mac does not display keyboard shortcuts, but the keys function the same as on a PC. On some Macintosh computers, when you try to use the Function keys, a dialogue box may appear saying that your Function keys need to be set up in SAP. To enable your Function keys, check the option not to display this message again.
