Keyboard Accelerator Keys

Accelerator keys allow you to use the calculator from the computer keyboard, rather than using the calculator's own keypad. Accelerator keys are sometimes a quicker way of getting to a function, especially for the experienced user or if the keypad equivalent can only be reached by pressing a number of keys. Some users prefer to use the keyboard rather than a pointing device (or they may not have one!).

The keyboard accelerator equivalents of the calculator keys are listed below, ordered alphabetically by description. There is also a table ordered by key legend.
