Use skip links

Skip links allow users to quickly navigate to the main content on a page, list, or form, bypassing icons, banner text, navigation links, and other elements.

About this task

The user interface includes skip links to the navigation menu, the content pane and, in UI11, to the form currently displayed in the content pane.

  • Skip to Navigation Menu: skips to the navigation filter in the application navigator.
  • Skip to Navigation Content: skips to the first selectable field or link in the main content pane.
  • Skip to Form Content: in UI11, skips to the first selectable field in the open form pane; if the form pane is not open, this link does not work.
Attention: You must enable the accessibility feature in order for skip links to work.

You may need to press the Tab key several times to move through the buttons in the Edge, the gray toolbar on the left side of the screen, to reach the skip links. When selected, skip links appear in the upper left corner of the user interface.
