As an example, we will load a style sheet from the ' My Style ' folder within the ' My Documents' folder, but you should substitute this with your own style sheet's location.

Click on the ' My Documents ' button on the left, or press ' Tab ' until the left sidebar area is highlighted and then select the ' My Documents ' icon with the arrow keys and press ' Enter '.

Scroll along in the list of files and folders and double click the ' My Style ' folder to open it, or press ' Tab ' to enter the file and folder list area, and use the arrow keys to select the ' My Styles ' folder and press ' Enter ' to open it.

Double click on the style sheet you wish to open, or press ' Tab ' until it is highlighted and press ' Enter ' to select it and return to the ' Accessibility ' dialog box.

Click ' OK ' or press ' Tab ' until the ' OK ' button is highlighted and press ' Enter ' to return to the ' Internet Options ' dialog box.

Click ' OK ' or press ' Tab ' until the ' OK ' button is highlighted and press ' Enter ' to return to Internet Explorer.

Note: If this does not work it could be because your computer settings cannot be changed due to local IT policies - contact your local IT support for further help.
