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
