I have a neurological problem that inhibits the use of a mouse. I am working with a spreadsheet in Calc that concatenates information from several cells and generates a hyperlink to a web page. The hyperlink is the only text in a given cell.

I have researched it but can't find if there is a keyboard shortcut to follow the hyperlink without using a mouse. I am a novice at programming macros. Is there a macro for executing a hyperlink if the cell pointer is in a hyperlink cell?

Thank you for the reply. The context menu does not act as expected. I am using LibreOffice Version: The attached image is the context menu that appears when I use the context menu button on a cell with a hyperlink as the contents

Put the cursor in the link, then press the key between the right Ctrl key and Windows key (assuming you are on Windows and have a modern keyboard), basically the key to get a context menu. A context menu pops up with an item Open hyperlink, from there the shortcut key is k for me, but it may be something else for you.

EDIT: Correct, I found that it works in Writer, but not in Calc. Sorry about that.
