Solution 20989: Shortcuts for Working with Menus Using the TI-83 Family, TI-84 Plus Family, and TI-Nspire™ Handheld in TI-84 Plus Mode.
Are there shortcuts that will make my work faster using the TI-83 family, TI-84 Plus family and TI-Nspire handheld in TI-84 Plus mode?
When using the TI-83 family, TI-84 Plus family, and TI-Nspire handheld in TI-84 Plus mode, below are a few shortcuts that would help in navigating menus easier:
1) When working in a menu that has a long list of items, i.e., [CATALOG] or [APPS]; to jump down to a specific portion of the list, press the key that corresponds to the first letter of the function to be used. For example, when in the CATALOG, pressing the [APPS] key will jump the user to the "B" section of the CATALOG.
2) Use the number keys printed in front of certain functions to access them quickly rather than scrolling down to the function, highlighting it, and pressing [ENTER]. For example, try accessing the convert to fraction command (►Frac) by pressing [MATH] .
3) For TI-84 Plus family and TI-Nspire handheld in TI-84 Plus mode users running OS 2.53MP or higher, new MATHPRINT shortcuts have been added for the [F1 - F5] keys. For example, pressing [ALPHA] [F1] will bring up the FRAC menu while pressing [ALPHA] [F4] will bring up the YVARS menu.
Please see the TI-83 family and TI-84 Plus family guidebooks for additional information.
