Every menuitem has a shortcut property[^].
You can define keystroke combinations in this property.

In addition you can use the & symbol while defining text.
For example, if you define E&xit as the text for a menu, alt + x will execute the menu's code for this menu item.

This link[^] is a good tutorial.
