accesskey HTML Attribute

The "accesskey" attribute in HTML is used to define a keyboard shortcut for an element. It allows users to activate an element by pressing a combination of keys on the keyboard, rather than having to use the mouse to click on the element.

When the accesskey is set on an element, it will be highlighted in some way to indicate that it has an accesskey defined. When the user presses the defined key combination, the element will be activated. The key combination is browser-specific and it's usually a combination of the ALT or CTRL key and the accesskey, but it can vary depending on the browser.

For example, in the following code snippet, the accesskey is set to "s" for the search button:


<button accesskey="s">Search</button>

When the user press ALT+S in windows or CTRL+S in Mac, the search button will be activated.

It's important to note that the accesskey attribute should be used sparingly and with care. Because the key combinations can vary from browser to browser, users may find it difficult to remember or use the accesskey. Additionally, it can also cause conflicts with other keyboard shortcuts and
