German term or phrase: Befehlswege
"In seiner einfachsten Gestalt ist ein Textfeld ein mit Text zu füllendes, vielfältig formatierbares Rechteck, auf das Sie über verschiedene Befehlswege Zugriff haben."

Would it be completely wrong to translate "Befehlswege" here as "command options"? Or does it mean something else like "command paths"?

Command paths/sequences
Explanation:
I don't think a specific technical term is meant here (e.g. no entry for this term in Microsoft Glossary). But I would avoid 'options' as it means something specific in related contexts.
