KeyTips provide quick access to the menus and controls on Tabs, Ribbons, the Quick Access Toolbar, and the Ares Icon. Clicking the ALT key or the F10 key displays KeyTips for the Quick Access Toolbar, the Ares Icon and all of the Tabs on the Ribbon. Typing the letter or number associated with the Tab, Toolbar or Icon displays the KeyTips for all controls housed there. For example, typing the P key opens the Process ribbon and displays the KeyTips for those controls.
Click ESC to move backward in the KeyTip hierarchy. For example, if you are viewing Ribbon KeyTips, clicking ESC will redisplay the Tabs KeyTips. If you are in a drop-down menu on the Ribbon (such as the Copyright menu), the menu will close and the KeyTips for all controls on the Ribbon will redisplay.
Click ALT or F10 to close KeyTips and return to the form. You can also click anywhere in the form to close KeyTips.
ScreenTips provide information about a control. They appear when the mouse pointer hovers over the control. For example the ScreenTip for the Course ID field on the Search Courses group of the Home ribbon explains the database fields used as search criteria. ScreenTips disappear when the control is selected or the mouse is moved away from the control.
