My probably not perfect way is to use Ctrl-. as many times as necessary (which is that the Cell is selected). If you are looking for keyboard shortcuts also have a look in the help browser Other Information -> Keyboard Shortcuts. Unfortunatly these differ slightly between different OS. Also there seems to be no officially supported way to (re-)define any of the keys, one of the things I miss most in Mathematica. A hack is to edit the file KeyEventTranslations.tr in the directory $TopDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources. You probably should make a copy of the file to $PreferenceDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources before editing (a backup is also a good idea). But remember, you can easily damage your installation when editing this file, and editing these files is AFAIK not really suggested by Wolfram (?). Hope that helps Albert
