    U can use IE and get there in 3 button Keep down ALT all the time, then press F, then press A. It will follow the file menu. The keys fit nicely under your left hand. I just hope that you use the mouse with your right hand. LOL

    hmm, I've always seen it in my IE browsers, besides it's a MS product. Most of the shortcuts and menu options are the same through all/most MS applications.
