MODE32 users should be absolutely certain to install the new MODE32 version 7.5 from Connectix (see TidBITS-243) before upgrading to System 7.5. We have it on good authority that installing System 7.5 on a non-32-bit-clean Macintosh with an earlier copy of MODE32 (or perhaps Apple's 32-bit Enabler) may cause severe damage to the system software, necessitating a complete reinstallation. Also, MODE32 7.5 is compatible with System 7.1, should you not have upgraded to 7.5 yet. [MHA]

Then you can press a letter corresponding with an item's name to select it; press Return to open it, Command-Q to quit the selected application, or Escape to exit keyboard access mode. You can also use the arrow keys, Tab key, and other keyboard navigation keys to toggle between the Dock items.
