From the Manual

While all features are accessible via mouse, using the keyboard can make for much more efficient play. Thus it is helpful to at least gradually learn some or all keyboard commands. Fortunately there is a general logic to the command modifiers that makes them easier to remember and keeps the input scheme consistent throughout the game ~Kyzrati:

 Ctrl:                               (Parts) Attachment/activation ("up")
 Alt:                                (Parts) Detach/Drop ("down")
 Shift:                              Information
 Shift-Alt:                          Rare/special commands
 F-keys:                             Interface mode changes
 Escape:                             Cancels/exits pretty much anything
