I create links in Open Office Calc, and i can use them with mouse.
Can i open those links with Keyboard?

Select them and use the right click button? Anyway, it's a good question. – AndrejaKo Mar 23 '11 at 13:02

I found such way:

To open a hyperlinked cell with the keyboard, select the cell, press F2 to enter the Edit mode, move the cursor in front of the hyperlink (press left arrow), press Shift+F10 (or menu key on bottom of the keyboard), and then choose Open Hyperlink.

This isn't fast method, but may be useful.

I'm not overly familiar with OpenOffice, BUT..! In excel this requires a macro. Something like:

Sub shouldbeadefaultfeature() ActiveCell.Hyperlinks(1).Follow End Sub

Then you assign it a hotkey, and it works. E.g. if you assign it to ctrl and a button, it will follow the hyperlink.

I assume the same would work for OpenOffice, but I am not sure of the macro manipulation in it. Good Luck!
