Control-A

Post by Doc on April 27th 2009, 12:26 am

A Canadian customer was calling to find out if there was a
faster way to
trigger menu commands than mousing up to the
menus.

Agent: Certainly,
sir. There are keyboard shortcuts for many
of those commands. For example,
suppose you want to trigger
the Select All command...

Caller: Yes, I
use that one all the time! How do I do it?

Agent: Well, you just press
Control-A.

Caller (after a pause): Well, that's not working for
me.

Agent: Do you have a text document open in front of
you?

Caller: Yes, I sure do.

Agent: OK, now press
Control-A.

Caller: I am, but nothing happens.

Agent: The text
isn't highlighted?

Caller: No, there's no change at all.

Agent:
That's odd. If you press Control-A the whole document
should be highlighted.
Try it again. Press Control-A. Tell
me exactly what's
happening.

Caller (nearing his Canadian breaking point): Listen. I'm

pressing Control, eh? And nothing's happening, eh?
