Default Creating A Keyboard Shortcut In Place of Using Mouse To Select Hyperlink Object

I have created my presentation linking about 20 slideshows into one presentation with the use of hyperlinks as objects. This is working well but I hate having to click the object each time and am wondering if there is a way that I can set up a keyboard shortcut that would automatically act in the same way as me clicking the hyperlink.



Ill survive if I have to use the mouse but I'd prefer not to use it.

Thanks!

If you have more than one link you may need to press Tab several times and then ENTER. You should be able see which link is selected.
