You can make "<alt>" sticky, then it's a one handed operation: TDE control center, "Regional settings/Accessibility", there 2. Tab "sticky keys" (sorry, translated from german, might be labeled otherwise), then it's:

<alt>, f, <down>, <right>, 2, <enter>

You could automate this sequence with a tool like "xbindkeys" and e.g. use the darn capslock-key to play that sequence :-)
