Navigate with keyboard
If you have difficulty using a mouse, it's often easier to navigate using the keyboard. In most browsers, you can do this by using the Tab key to jump from one link to the next, and Enter to activate a link. To return to the previous link, press Shift + Tab. If it does not work in your browser, there should be information about how to do it in the browser's documentation or help system.
