keystroke to default to top (empty) value of drop-down menu in select / option tag

I need to find a keystroke in Internet Explorer (Windows) that will set a drop-down menu to the top value, which looks like this:

<option value=""></option>

I tried changing them to spaces:

<option value=" "> </option>

...but hitting the spacebar still doesn't move it. What I need is similar to how you can hit a letter, such as H on your keyboard, and it takes you to the first alphabetical H listing in the drop-down menu. But I want it to go to the very top instead.

Thank you!
