Text Conventions

Convention Description
Screen displays
This typeface indicates command syntax, or represents information as it appears on the screen.
The words enter and type When you see the word “enter” in this guide, you must type something, and then press the Return or Enter key. Do not press the Return or Enter key when an instruction simply says “type.”
[Key] names Key names are written with brackets, such as [Return] or [Esc]. If you must press two or more keys simultaneously, the key names are linked with a plus sign (+). Example: Press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del]
Words in italicized type Italics emphasize a point or denote new terms at the place where they are defined in the text. Italics are also used when referring to publication titles.
