    I was wondering if there is a way to choose options using keyboard arrows. For example, when Finder asks me whether I want to open a downloaded file from the internet, and I want to say "No", I want to be able to press left and press enter and that'll be it. Instead, I have to use my mouse to click on No.

    Is there a way to do this? I went to System Prefs, Keyboards, and clicked on All Controls, but that wasn't the solution.

    If you read the text above "All Controls" you see that you can tab between the options. Pressig the space bar presses the circled button.

    I did read the text, but I remember being able to use my arrow keys to switch between options in leopard. Maybe it's not possible anymore with the keys in snow leopard?
