drop down menus in Vista using "alt" keyboard commands

drop down menus in Vista using "alt" keyboard commands

Does anyone know where I can direct a user to find a printable chart that has all the keyboard commands for Vista? Primarily this user can't seem to locate a chart that has the keyboard commands in Vista for the dropdown menus in Excel, Powerpoint, etc. He wants to navigate without using the mouse and is comfortable in XP with using the "alt" key to access dropdown menus, but is having difficulty with a new computer that came with Vista. He would prefer to be able to print out a chart and have it nearby to refer to. Thanks in advance.

RE: drop down menus in Vista using "alt" keyboard commands

I would guess that better than 90% of the keystroke shortcuts are the same in Vista as they have been since Win98. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/126449

However, you seem to be asking about MS Office applications, not Vista itself.  Here, it might be important to know which version of MS Office we're referring to, but they should still be mostly similar.  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA011407361033.aspx
