Keyboard Shortcuts and Sequences: Troubleshooting Menu Activation in PowerPoint

It really does not matter which program you are using on a Mac. Your Menu Bar remains constant irrespective of the program being used. Yes some menus do change but some such as the Apple menu are retained all the time. To activate the Menu Bar without a mouse, you can press the Ctrl+F2 key combination (or Ctrl+Fn+F2, if you use a smaller keyboard on a Mac laptop). Thereafter you access various menu options by typing their first couple of letters.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
