Hi, I'm new to Mathematica. I am using Version 4.0, Student

I'm thinking there must be a keyboard shortcut to enter text.
I have figured out how to alter preferences (or something)
and have the toolbar displayed whenever a notebook is
opened. But whenever I want to insert a text cell, I have
to grab the mouse, point to the dropdown edit box in the
toolbar, and specifically select text.

Is there not a keyboard shortcut to designate the next
entry as text?

I've looked in Help, with no luck, so far.
