Use the arrow keys to increase and decrease the percentage 1 by 1. Use Shift-Tab to set the focus to the percentage box, where you can edit the given value directly. Pressing Enter activates the changed value. When the "knob" has the focus, pressing PageUp/PageDown increases/decreases the percentage by some amount. Pressing Home sets the percentage to 300%, and End sets it to 25%.
