On my Windows system, the sequence of keystrokes 'Alt + c' opens the 
/Cell/ menu and 'Alt + r' opens the /Format/ menu. Since hitting the 
'Alt' key plus a letter to access some menu options is the conventional 
way to build GUI in Windows, either you are not using Windows (but still 
have a keyboard with the 'Alt' key) or you have a heavily customized 
version of Mathematica.

At any rate, the default keystrokes to open or close a group of cells is 
'Alt + shift + {' and 'Alt + shift + }', respectively. They match the 
menu entries Cell -> Grouping -> Open All Subgroups and Cell -> Grouping 
-> Close All Subgroups.
