I am asking about keyboard shortcuts in Excel.

When you are editing a chart in Excel, the format task pane seems to have underlined keyboard shortcuts for various options. Mine don't seem to work, regardless if I try using the Alt key, etc.

How can I use the underlined letter shortcuts in the format chart task pane in excel?

For example, I have made a box and whisker plot in Excel, I want to quickly add a mean marker to my data series. When I right click on the data series I want to edit and select "Format Data Series", the task pane on the right has an option "Show mean markers", with the "m" underlined. In my experience with Excel this should mean that there is an associated keyboard shortcut - however I am unable to activate it.



I think you directly type the underline letter in your case type "m" to Show mean markers, instead of using Alt key.
