Vivado - Is there a way to access the options in the Vivado IDE main menu using the keyboard​?


In the Vivado IDE, is there a way to access the options in the main menu using only the keyboard (No Mouse)?


Yes, you can access the options in the main menu using keyboard shortcuts.

In the Vivado IDE GUI, if you hold the Alt Button, you will see these underlined characters in the main menu.


Typing Alt+ the relevant letter will open each menu. 

For example Alt+F will open the File menu.

You can use the direction keys on your keyboard to navigate through these menus and hit return to select the option you want.
