In the preferences, it's not currently possible to get to any of the settings by tabbing on the keyboard. This is default Windows applications behaviour and should not be inhibited. Even though Lightroom users are generally able to use a mouse, having good keyboard navigtion doesn't hurt anything and only helps those who prefer to tab through and modify settings by keyboard.

Furthermore, the dropdown boxes in the settings are not system default ones - they just look like default ones. When clicked, they produce a context menu, rather than a dropdown. This may or may not contribute to the problem of keyboard navigation. This is provable by the fact that clicking them does not focus them, as is the case with system default dropdowns.

This applies to all Lightroom versions so far, on all Windows versions. Tested on Lightroom 6.4, Windows 10.
