How to specify the keyboard shortcuts using only one key
Keyboard shortcuts using only one key:
- Should either only be active when the item they affect is focused.
- Or users should be able to disable them.
- Or users should be able to reconfigure them (in order to replace them with combinations using multiple keys including Ctrl, Alt, etc.).
This guideline does not apply to keyboard shortcuts that can be triggered only when the keyboard focus is set on a specific component (for instance, the Down Arrow key which opens an option list when the keyboard focus is positioned on it).
