A mnemonic is an underlined alphanumeric character, typically appearing in a menu title, menu item, or the text of a button or component of the user interface. A mnemonic indicates to the user which key to press (in conjunction with the Alt key) to activate a command or navigate to a component.
The usage of mnemonics in languages other than English is limited to the possibility of entering the underlined character using a single key stroke.
