Is it possible to invoke the MS Office Word Ribbons with WinMenuSelectIem?

Or is there a way to manage the Office Ribbons via ahk?

What you can do is use the keyboard shortcuts within the office ribbon (alt key sequence) to access the items within eg.

enter image description here

Access pattern:


Would be written in autohotkey as:

send {alt}hfis return

So by using the key stroke sequence you would normally use you can access the content you need to

  • so I guess that the same procedure could be to anything in the ribbon
