Controlling Media Center with Your Keyboard

Navigating your Media Center interface with your keyboard is a snap, and it can also turn you into a “power user,” giving you access to many more powerful commands than are available from your remote control alone.

These commands are issued by means of “hard-wired” buttons mounted on your keyboard in addition to the traditional “QWERTY” keyboard layout, as well as keyboard shortcuts, which are combinations of keystrokes that execute a particular action. Either method can be much faster than mousing your way through menu after menu, trying to find the right command to click on. They are also popular with people who suffer from repetitive strain injuries and experience wrist pain from using their mouse.
