A few handy Mac short cuts
I was surprised when I moved from a PC to a Mac a few years ago how adrift the change of operating system left me. All the keyboard shortcuts and little tricks gathered over years melted away to leave me feeling like a computer novice. Here’s some of the most useful Mac shortcuts I’ve learnt over the last few years, posted as much as a reference for myself as anything else.
- FINDER - Space bar in Finder - Previews a file. Works with text, images and video.
- FINDER - Hold down command and double click on a folder to open it in a new Finder window. 3. CHROME - Shift + Cmd + t opens the last tab closed.
- TEXT EDITOR - Shift + Cmd + v pastes text without formatting.
- MAC - Cmd + Tab brings up the app switcher and allows you to move from one program to another using keys. 6. TEXT EDITOR - **A few things I can never remember:
- Shift + Alt + 2 gives me a € sign.
- Alt + 3 gives me a £ sign.
- Shift + 3 gives me a # sign.
- Cmd + Arrow goes to beginning or end of a line.
- MAC - Cmd + Alt + Esc brings up the Force Quit panel.
- FINDER -Press enter with a file selected to rename it.
