 shortcuts

12/12/2009

people who use macs come to learn all the basic ones pretty quickly, things like ⌘ + Q = quit, ⌘ + Tab = cycle through programs, etc etc

here are some useful ones you may not have known about though
⌘ + ⇧ + 4 = take selected area screenshot
⌥ + ⌘ + esc = bring up force quit window
ctrl + tab = cycle through safari tabs
⌘ + ` (back tick) = cycle through safari + photoshop windows
⌘ + arrow keys = move around folders + folder hierarchy
ctrl +  ⇧ + ⏏ = turn off screen [move mouse/press any key to turn back on]
⌘ + delete = move item to trash
⌘ + h = hide application

as if that wasn’t enough, try this: open the Terminal, type ’emacs’, press ⇧ + Esc, type ‘xdoctor’…
i honestly don’t know why that’s there, but it is. have fun
