Choosing options from a pop-up window

Hello, I'm wondering if there is a way to choose from different options without using the mouse in a pop-up window (not sure how they are called, but the window that pops up and asks if you want to save, cancel or don't save). You know, like with the arrows, choose what you want to do, and press enter to do that.

Thanks :)

Space Bar to restart, Enter key to shut down.
