Keyboard shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are required for accessibility and for power users and developers. When attempting to implement an #fse-outreach-experiment we’re asked “Did it work using keyboard only”. In order to be able to answer this question we have to know what keys to use. Unfortunately the ability to view the keyboard shortcuts is not available in the Site Editor at present. This could just be a temporary glitch.

I’m going to try. I’ve been a mouse user for over 35 years, and a keyboard user for 45. I should be able to do this.

Perhaps I should disconnect my mouse while I perform this task.

I’ve failed at the first hurdle. How do I choose Edit page?
