    What not sure what exact term is for the question box... but I'm trying to find out the keyboard shortcut to select the second option in a question box.

    What's the keyboard shortcut to select "Add" rather than the highlighted "Don't Add?"

    Right arrow doesn't work, pressing "a" doesn't work, Tab doesn't work. What is it?

    That's been asked many, many times in this forum. There isn't a keyboard shortcut to do that.

    Yes, you can. In the Keyboard Shortcuts section of the Keyboard preference pane, select the option "all controls". You can now use tab to switch between the options, and space to select the one you've highlighted.

    I stand corrected. I thought he meant something else.

    In Snow Leopard, command + A (or first capital letter) should work. Don't know about any other OS.
