Default Key Settings for Interactive SAS Sessions under Windows

Default Key Definitions under Windows

The following table lists the default key definitions for the primary SAS application windows (such as Program Editor, Log, and Output), excluding the Enhanced Editor. Keyboard Shortcuts within the Enhanced Editor lists the default key definitions for the Enhanced Editor. Any other key combination that is not listed in this table is either reserved by Windows or has a definition that you cannot change within SAS (see Keyboard Shortcuts within the SAS Main Window).

If you want to browse or change any of the key definitions that are listed in this table, you can do so by selecting Tools [arrow] Options [arrow] Keys or by issuing the KEYS command.
