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
