UTS Keystrokes

The following tables list the keystrokes that you can use with a UTS session, plus HLAPPI commands for a UTS session.

When you see two keys connected by a plus sign (+), press and hold down the first key, and then press the second key. For all keystrokes that involve the numeric keypad, Num Lock must be off. All letter keys are lowercase letters.
