    Which key do I have to press to respond to this without having to use the mouse?


    I've tried O (Open) , Cmd+O, Return etc... Tab doesn't work either.

    It's not a big deal it's just annoying.

    Thank you.

    Looking at that image it seems to be because the box is not highlighted, if it was Tab should go through the options and enter to accept option

    Enabled now, tab is working. Thanks! :)

    On windows, I could press C for Cancel , O for open, S for save as. Basically the first word is underlined like "Save as" so if i pressed alt+s that option would be chosen.

    Is there something similar on the mac where I don't have to use the tab to move between the options?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pressing Space Bar will select the button with the outline, other than that you need to Tab.
