As well, KeyStore entries take advantage of contextual menus or natural editing actions such as but not limited to delete, rename, expand, undo/redo. Many of these actions can also be used through Keyboard shortcuts. Navigation between KeyStore entries is enhanced by positioning based on the first character (case sensitive) of a KeyStore alias or by sorting the table columns.
