ALT codes no longer work

As a (self-proclaimed) MS power-user, ALT codes are life. When Power BI Desktop got ALT codes, I was overjoyed and my life was changed forever. However, since the November update with the new ribbon (which is mostly awesome!), the ALT codes no longer seem to exist! I spend my days repeatedly typing ALT, H, R and similar key combinations, but to no avail. I sit dejectedly at my desk staring at my monitor and at my mouse, willing there to be a way to Power BI without using that dreadful apparition. Somebody please save me! I cannot go on living, forced to use use a mouse for a task as simple as refreshing my model. This is cruel and unusal punishment, and I kindly request to the Power BI gods that we would get this feature back. Thank you.

I've just updated to 2.84.802.0 64x (Aug 2020), but I am still not able to get the ALT codes to work. Is there somewhere that I need to enable them?
